It is widely known that better educated persons tend to live longer than the less educated. There is apparently less public and political awareness of the fact that marital status is also strongly associated with mortality. Yet, hundreds of studies carried out over more than 150 years have shown that those who are married have better health and live longer than those who are never-married, divorced or widowed.

According to Eurostat figures, 32 per cent of Europe’s over-65s live alone, most of whom are women. Loneliness has become a public health issue, to which the Red Cross refers to as a “silent epidemic”, as "harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day" and "that kills more people than obesity", reports an independent news website.

The AAL Forum will look at the future of the digital transformation of health and social inclusion of the ageing population. It offers the opportunity to be involved in an ecosystem that promotes a new social and economic approach to develop a more inclusive silver economy that benefits individuals, society and industry.
AGE Platform Europe will be involved in a number of workshops organised as part of the Forum:
The theme of the 2018 Fundamental Rights Forum of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights is 'Belonging'. It will focus on strengthening the ties that bind everyone in the EU to the societies they live in. Building on the basic need for people to feel safe, secure and belong to a wider community. The event is expected to bring together over 400 participants from human rights communities, the arts, business, international, national and local organisations to discuss new perspectives to pressing human rights issues and strategies.
In June 2018, experts of the EU-funded project FrailSafe - in which AGE is involved - met 16 physiotherapists of the University Hospital in Graz (Austria) at the neurological department to discuss frailty, its effects on older persons and how it impacts treatment outcomes during and after a hospital stay.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the International Human Rights Day on 10th December this year, AGE is launching a 70-day campaign against ageism next 1st October, with the support of partner civil society organisations.
This celebration offers us a unique opportunity to remind that human rights do not diminish with age and denounce the negative impact of ingrained ageism on older persons’ human rights.
