Join us at our event in Cartagena on data and older people (c) Frederic Dupoux/HelpAge InternationalMaking older people count

Cartagena Data Festival

On 20 April, we're hosting a side event at the Cartagena Data Festival to ensure older people are counted in the Sustainable Development Goals.

Current data systems are not fit for purpose in today's ageing world.

The event will focus on ageing and review the progress and challenges of making data on older age more visible.

Find out more about our event on data and older people.
