  3. 3. What Is Active Ageing? 3 Source: WHO http://www.who.int/ageing/active_ageing/en/index.html The WHO states that “Active ageing is the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age. It applies to both individuals and population groups¨[…] allows people to realize their potential for physical, social, and mental well-being throughout the life course and to participate in society, while providing them with adequate protection, security and care when they need. Within companies this can be translated in Active Age Management policies, ensuring to optimise the ageing workforce contribution, capitalising on their knowledge to enhance inter- generational exchange.
