Message from the Minister

The Portuguese Government under the coordination of the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, is pleased to announce the UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing 2017 on the theme A Sustainable Society for All Ages: Realizing the potential of living longer to be held in Lisbon, on the 21st and the 22nd of September 2017.

Portugal, as a member of the United Nations Economic Commission for EUROPE (UNECE) engaged in promoting active ageing policy in all areas, is proud to hold this conference that will gather Ministers from the UNECE member States but also from the Portuguese Speaking Countries, as well as representatives of European and International organizations and non-governmental organizations and prominent experts and scientists, from across the UNECE region to take stock and evaluate the implementation of the MIPAA/RIS since the last Ministerial Conference in Vienna in 2012.

Ministerial and expert panels will deal with a broad range of topics including the promotion of longer working life, the non-discrimination and social inclusion of older persons, the creation of an enabling environment for health as well as independence and ageing in dignity. The discussions will also include representatives from civil society and the scientific community. The Conference will end with the adoption of the Lisbon Ministerial Declaration 2017 on the priorities of activities for the next five years until 2022.

A Research and a Civil Society Forums that will be held in the 20th of September will adopt declarations, which will contribute to the Ministerial discussions.

We also expect to have a positive outcome of the Lisbon Ministerial Conference feeding into the global review of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing in 2018.

We have a big challenge in our hands. I count on you to be part of it!

Looking forward to meet you in Lisbon, in September 2017.
