2015 Silver Economy Conference

II Silver Economy Congress

6 October 2015, Ministry of Economy

The II Silver Economy Congress took place on 6 October 2015 at the premises of the Ministry of Economy.

The leading theme of this year’s edition was the accessibility and improvement of quality of services of older persons. We also had a debate about the potential of a senior-friendly market and of senior housing, the role of new technologies in the silver economy and the sources of financing of this still new branch of the Polish economy. We also focused on the role of Poland in the development of the silver economy in Poland.

The Congress was a non-commercial event and participation was free of charge for participants.

The Congress is a one day meeting, with high level discussions and workshops, based on many concrete examples, analytical data and models. Participants will not abstain from controversial insights and courageous recommendations for the implementation of new solutions.

The Congress started with presentations of national and European policies and strategies. Then we had three parallel sets of debates, divided into thematic groups:

  • Importance of the silver economy, finance, insurance, goods and services,
  • Active ageing, health, education, 50+ labour market, 65+ consumer market,
  • New technologies, construction, senior housing, health care facilities.

The conclusions of the discussions will be used to stimulate further action at all levels, including the EU level. After the Congress the organisers will prepare a summary containing the main outcome of the meeting and recordings of each debate.

Marzena Rudnicka, president of the Polish Institute of Silver Economy, thanks all participants for their participation in the Congress.
