The future of pensions debate during the European Retirement Week

17 June 2021 — Alexandra GUZUN
Nine European associations have gathered to launch the European Retirement Week that will take place during the week of 29 November 2021 in order to debate the future of pensions in Europe and to raise citizens' awareness of the need to save for retirement.

AGE Platform Europe, BETTER FINANCE, BEUC - The European Consumer Association, European Association of Paritarian Institutions (AEIP), the European Banking Federation (EBF), EFAMA, the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE), Insurance Europe and Pensions Europe are the associations which took the initiative to organize the event.

The initiative goal is to increase public awareness of the importance of long-term savings and returns. The participating associations therefore aim to establish European Retirement Week as a well-known and recurring event in the European calendar.

The European Retirement Week will be organized online given the continuing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It will begin with a high-level event and will feature a rich programme, including a range of presentations and panel discussions spotlighting different aspects of Europe's retirement saving challenge and identifying possible solutions.
