What needs to change?
‘Advancing equality for older people’, our new report, calls for two key legal shifts to end age discrimination:
- Internationally – Older people’s rights must be formally recognised in a UN convention.
- Nationally – Governments must adopt comprehensive anti-discrimination laws that prohibit all discrimination, including age discrimination.
One in six of us will be aged 65 or older by 2050. Age discrimination will affect every single one of us so let’s work to end it, shall we?
