Why the Jan Nagel 50plus foundation

The Dutch based Jan Nagel 50PLUS Foundation (JNF50PLUS) promotes and supports ways to bring senior citizens together, to feed their debate on the development of societies in which the elderly are respected and heard , to guarantee the rights of the the elderly (‘senior citizens’) and to ensure they are adequately represented on a political level in other countries.

Public participation, transparency and information are our key principles.


  • JNF50PLUS aims to promote the political emancipation of seniors at a EU- and on a global level by establishing and intensifying contacts with other seniorsparties and organisations in the European Union and other non EU countries.
  • Where possible, JNF50PLUS seeks a basis for joint activities. Our focus is primarily on education and training activities in order to support political parties and organisations outside the Netherlands which focuson the senior citizens


JNF50PLUS is planning to host an international seminar in 2020. Topic for this seminar is to investigate how to increase cooperation between parties and organisations contributing to improving the situation of seniors in Europe.

Based on results of this upcoming conference and new contacts , a strategy will be formulated and several plans will be developed.

These plans will primarily focus on:

The promotion and improvement of knowledge and skills to strengthen the political and/or social position of our new partners in Europe.

Special attention will be given to the position, and the active involvement of women.
