Alzheimer Europe (AE) defines its mission as "changing perceptions, practice and policy in order to improve the access of people with dementia and their carers to treatment options and care services". In addition, the organisation has defined its guiding philosophy as "promoting the autonomy and self-determination of people with dementia and their carers throughout the course of the disease".
To achieve its mission and accomplish its vision, Alzheimer Europe has developed four objectives in its strategic plan (2011-2015) which was developed within the framework of its 2010 Operating Grant:
1. Making dementia a European priority through representing the interests of people with dementia, partnering with European institutions and jointly developing policy;
2. supporting policy with facts by improving the information exchange between AE, its members and other stakeholders, by setting up a European Dementia Observatory and by comparing national systems and identifying best practices;
3. basing our actions on ethical principles by understanding ethical principles and approaches, promoting a rights-based approach to dementia and finding common ground and building consensus on ethical issues;
4. building a stronger organisation by supporting and involving national associations, involving people with dementia and their carers, establishing AE conferences as unique networking opportunities, developing strategic partnerships, providing a sound governance structure and diversifying the organisation`s funding.
On the basis of these strategic objectives, Alzheimer Europe develops annual work plans outlining the priority areas and projects of the organisation.

The EUropean Network for Action on Aging and Physical Activity (EUNAAPA), established in 2005, and formalised at the end of the EUNAAPA Project (DG SANCO 200536; 2006-2008). It is a thematic, collaborative network, currently consisting of 150 members working in the field of Physical Activity and Aging from 26 different countries and from different disciplines specifically science, professionals (e.g. physiotherapists), elderly representatives, policy. The EUNAAPA mission is to improve the health, wellbeing and independence of older people throughout Europe by the promotion of evidence based physical activity.

The vision of EUNAAPA is optimal health and quality of life for older people in Europe through physical activity and it aims to use evidence-based strategies to improve health and quality of life among older people in Europe through physical activity.

The EUNAAPA objectives are to:
1. identify, disseminate and promote evidence-based practice in physical activity for all older people in Europe;
2. select or develop evidence-based guidelines for practice in the area of aging and physical activity;
3. provide information, and expert advice to policy makers, providers and professionals in the fields of aging, physical activity, and health;
4. influence the development of educational curricula and standards of competence for professionals involved in the provision of physical activity for older people;
5. develop synergies among researchers, providers and professionals in the fields of aging, physical activity, and health;
6. support policymakers in intersectorial approaches to the promotion of physical activity among all older people;
7. cooperate with other organizations relevant to the promotion of physical activity among all older people;
8. involve older people in the development and implementation of network activities.

EUNAAPA’s mission, vision and objectives are transformed into a multi annual roadmap and annual work plans designed with and communicated to the key stakeholders through a variety of dissemination tools including the website (www.eunaapa.org), newsletter and presentations.

The ultimate (indirect) objective of the project is to contribute to sustaining health of older people in their longer and more active life span. To rich the objective, it is necessary to develop knowledge of factors influencing healthy aging. Such knowledge is more and more available but it is not equally common in all groups of the elderly and in all European countries. At the same time, knowledge of medically reasonable and cost-effective methods of health promotion among older people in various stages of aging is rather modest. An important and direct objective of the project is to contribute to the proven knowledge of health promotion among older people. To implement research results among health promoters, materials and trainings will be provided. This is the second important direct objective of the project. Milestones achieved by this project will strenghten European and national health programs of healthy aging.
