Demographic Change

Demographic Change logoIn the European context, demographic change results from changing birth, mortality and migration rates. It is influenced both by sociocultural developments, such as the individualisation of family structures, and by specific economic developments, such as labour migration by young people which is leading to local depopulation in many parts of Europe. Many of the effects of demographic change only become visible after a long period of time and are therefore not easy to pinpoint. That is why it is important to raise stakeholders' awareness and monitor the consequences of demographic developments.

"As the population ages, the contribution of people over 50 to economies and communities has to be reassessed. The impact of this trend differs from city to city and from region to region, but it will influence nearly every sphere of life: the labour market, housing, social security systems, infrastructure, urban/spatial planning, education, budgets and finances."
