Message of the President of EURAG
Dear Members and Friends of the European Federation of Older Persons!
To begin with, I hope that you - and your whole family - could enjoy some happy, quiet and relaxing days at the end of the year 2017 and that you then had a joyful and optimistic start into 2018. May it be for you a year with many moments of happiness, small and big successes in all your undertakings and, in particular, with solid health.
The year 2017 has been another very effective one for EURAG. Our multiple activities have attracted new members and strengthened our internal “family” as well as our external relationships and the recognition by our partners.
In early May 2017 we had our General Council meeting in Darlówo/Poland together with a very interesting topical conference on the issue of the general importance and the individual value of tourism of older persons. At this occasion we had the great pleasure to enjoy - at the shores of the Baltic Sea - great hospitality of our Polish partners.
Together with our General Assembly in Vienna/Austria, at the end of September - where the Board of EURAG has been re-elected for another 3 years - and during a fascinating topical conference right at the beginning October 2017, we were able to happily celebrate the 55th anniversary of EURAG, the oldest transnational civil society organisation on ageing issues. At this occasion, which took place in the beautiful Town Hall of the City of Vienna, we could welcome many high-ranked guests and listen to beautiful music performances.[continue]
