This publication has been written by the Finnish student group that participated in an Erasmus funded intensive program, Multidisciplinary European Program, in Lille, France in spring 2011 with the guidance of lecturer Pertti Laitinen. The book includes the main issues of the program, ageing, from the perspective of the Finnish economy and working life from a wide perspective. The populations of most European countries are becoming predominantly populated by elderly people. The European states and municipalities face many types of challenges, which range from economical to social and ethical. Starting from a multidisciplinary and multicultural basis, the aim of partner institutions has been to review the current ways of dealing with ageing in order to try and work out a distinctly European approach of the subject-matter, which would be based on sustainability and active citizenship.
