Towards a new approach to standards that support active and healthy ageing to engage with users of all age groups.
Ensure the compliance of the standards developed with a set of ethical principles which echoes the founding European values of respect and dignity in the European Union Charter of Fundamental Rights;
Raise awareness of the benefits of the inclusion of older people – as experts regarding their own needs and preferences – in standards development;
Improve the inclusion of a wider range of stakeholders in the standardisation process and engage older people ́s representatives in order to ensure a better fit of standards with the needs and preferences of older people;
Make the standardisation process accessible in accordance with design-for-all principles so as to facilitate the participation of civil society representatives (examples of work could encompass user interfaces and built environments that are friendly, accessible and usable).
