CONCLUSIONS

Addressing the territorial effects of demographic change on urban

and regional development is one of the most acute goals supported

by the Central Europe Programme;

Transnational cooperation is perceived as a highly relevant

approach for tackling the ageing related issues;

Involvement of all affected stakeholders is inevitable for

introduction of active ageing measures;

Several exciting projects are already being supported that are

actively addressing the issue of demographic change and ageing of

the society.
