A major challenge in effective active ageing support is to identify/design new organizational structures, approaches, and mechanisms so that on one hand older people do not feel excluded, and on the other hand they have the chance to make valued contributions to the communities where they live. Collaborative networks involving a variety of stakeholders, e.g. senior professionals, intermediary entities, and beneficiaries have the potential of inducing more effective integration of seniors in the socio-economic system. It is particularly relevant to characterize the various stakeholders to be involved in this process as well as their roles and inter-relationships. Departing from the analysis of current and emerging organizational forms, this paper identifies the challenges and suggests new directions for active ageing.
