The Impact of Demographic Change in Europe

A profound demographic change is already affecting our societies and communities across the EU. Curious to see what Europe will look like in the decades to come?

According to the European Commision's Demography Report, trends over the next few decades include:

  • life expectancy in Europe is set to increase
  • Europe will be ageing
  • Europeans will have fewer children later in life
  • Europe’s population will decrease, accounting for 4% of the world’s population

Addressing demographic changes is key to building a more resilient, sustainable and fair Union.
