The Norwegian Government’s strategy for an age-friendly society.
It is the Government’s goal to make society more age-friendly, and to better harness on the resources offered by older people in terms of participation and contribution. We will update rules, counteract negative attitudes, reduce age discrimination, adopt new technology and provide better facilitation for activity and participation. Including older people in working life in particular will help secure future welfare, as part of the transformation Norway is facing. Activity is also an investment in health. A society that makes it possible for older people to be active for more years stimulates self-reliance, quality of life and opportunities.
