The shifts in age-group ratios in the population are confronting all continents with new challenges. At the moment Europe is at the top of the old age statistics with the highest life expectancy rate. The changes in the age structure of the population mean new socio-political responsibilities both today and in the future. Participation of older persons in all decisions concerning them, has to apply not only for age policies and social programmes, but also for the design of all kinds of equipment, technical aids, plans for flats or homes for older persons, - including restrooms. EURAG European Federation of Older Persons, welcomes the approach of User Driven Research promoted by the European Commission, GD Research as an important contribution to bringing the European Union closer to its citizens.
