Older people with profile, power and personality can go a long way to changing how the world thinks about ageing.
We at HelpAge International are busy finding global #OlderNotOver champions and we would love network members to find their own country champions too. Together, we can create a bank of people who we can call on to help us spread the word, speak out and even change policy.
Do you have an influential politician, media or sports personality in your country – or someone who is active in your community who you think would make a great champion of older people?
Why not use #OlderNotOver as an opportunity to approach them and ask them to be your cheer leader?
Here’s what you could ask them to do.
