Abstract Population aging is accelerating rapidly in Spain, posing challenges and creating opportunities for the active aging of future generations. Currently, the deep economic crisis and the complex political situation form the background to the debate on policies that will influence the life conditions of the elderly of the current and future generations: pensions, retirement age, and the care of dependent people. The present article reviews some aspects of the situation in Spain that can act as barriers or catalyzers for intersectoral action to achieve active aging in our country. The conditions that may influence the success of these actions are identified, and some public policies for intersectoral actions that could promote active aging in Spain are suggested.
