The climate crisis is the most pressing issue of our time and it affects us all, no matter our age. HelpAge recognises the impact that climate change has on older people and their communities, and the importance of addressing this issue in order to protect and improve their lives.
Working with network members and partners, HelpAge has been supporting older people affected by humanitarian emergencies, like natural disasters since the day the organisation was born. During times of crises and disasters, we make sure that the needs of older people are taken into account. Making sure older people get help when needed and can affect change is a big part of why we exist.
As the climate crisis intensifies, we pledge our commitment to continue to take action to confront this emergency.
