About the Coalition

The Coalition for Healthy Ageing was launched on 11 July 2012 in response to the increasing needs related to changes in demography, lifestyles and developing social expectations regarding the quality of life in old age. The main focus of the Coalition’s activities is to act for next generations of seniors. Our work is guided by the principle “Healthy old age starts in childhood”, a motto of the Polish EU Presidency, which represents the essence of the Active and Healthy Ageing concept.

More than 40 authors, eminent experts in their fields, participated in the initiative. The Foreword to the White Paper was written by Ms Ewa Kopacz, Speaker of the Sejm of the Republic of Poland. Introductions to individual parts of the report were authored by President Lech Wałęsa...
