OLD International Day of Older Persons

1 October 2016: Take a stand against ageism!

The theme for International Day of Older Persons this year is ‘Take a stand against ageism’.

The HelpAge network is using this this opportunity to highlight how ageism manifests itself across the world and leads to the discrimination, stereotyping and abuse of older people everywhere.


International Day of Older Persons 2016: Take a stand against ageism!

As part of our Age Demands Action global campaign on 1 October, we'll be inviting you to share your experiences of #everydayageism and join the conversation to raise awareness of how widespread ageism is.
