Strategien retter seg særlig mot disse områdene:

• Lengre arbeidsliv omhandler kompetanseutvikling, holdningsendringer, ny livsfasepolitikk, øke avgangsalder og videreutvikle pensjonspolitikken
• Aldersvennlig lokalsamfunn hvor planlegging og samfunnsutvikling, boligpolitikk, lokalt kulturliv og transport er viktige elementer
• Frivillig sektor og sivilsamfunn får økt betydning for å aktivisere og styrke sosial deltakelse
• Nyskaping, nytte og næring omhandler hvordan vi kan utvikle og ta i bruk teknologi og nye løsninger som kan stimulere næringsliv og ”the silvereconomy” samtidig som det styrker eldrebefolkningens mestring og deltakelse
• Helse- og omsorgssektoren må fremme helse gjennom livsløpet for å få sunn aldring
• Forskning om aldring og betingelser for aktive eldre skal bli bedre

(The strategy is aimed particularly at those areas:
• A longer working life concerns competence, attitude changes, new life phase policy, increase retirement age and develop pensions policy
• Age-friendly communities where planning and public policy, housing policy, cultural life and transport are important elements
• The voluntary sector and civil society have increased importance for activating and enhancing social participation
• Innovation, utility and industrial concerns how we can develop and adopt technology and solutions that can stimulate business and "the silver economy" as well as strengthening coping and participation in the elderly population
• The health care sector must promote health throughout the life span to facilitate healthy aging
• Research on aging and conditions for active elderly should be improved)
