(c) HelpAge International action/2015

Bringing old and young together

The action/2015 campaign, which is calling on governments to end poverty and address inequality, launches on 15 January.

HelpAge is working with people across generations to raise awareness of older people's vision of the world they want to live in.

Our network is joining national coalitions and youth groups to amplify the voices of older people, including 15 older campaign champions.
