The Committee of Regions endorses the Silver Economy Awards

Since its launch the Silver Economy Awards Scheme has received strong institutional support under the Patronage of the Committee of Regions (CoR).

During the European Week of Regions and Cities 2017, the First CoR Vice President, Mr. Markku Markkula opened the SEED Workshop, emphasizing the need for a “bottom-up strategy for the European Silver Economy that can only be achieved by creating synergies among European stakeholders” as the Awards aim to do.

In addition, as we have proudly announced, the CoR will host the 1st Silver Economy Awards Ceremony at its premises in Brussels on 3rd of May 2018 (click here to register).
