Ageing Workforce, Social Cohesion and Sustainable Development: Political Challenges within the Baltic Sea Region

What demographic and political challenges lie ahead for the Baltic Sea Region?

Pub. Sep 28, 2018 Published September 28, 2018

The analyses presented in the Discussion Paper ‘Ageing Workforce, Social Cohesion and Sustainable Development’ are a result of thorough scientific evidence and discussions among experts from research, policy and societal organisations from eleven Baltic Sea States. Results suggest, for instance, that regional and national policies aimed at creating sustainable ageing societies should better support small and medium-sized enterprises in adapting to new characteristics of the working force. Similarly, more support is needed in order to promote employment at all ages in less-developed regions and outside metropolitan regions. It is also of key importance to target the most vulnerable groups within the ageing labour force.
