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.
Meet Javeria Afzal, our first dedicated Climate Change Advisor.
“I’m passionate about ensuring older people have a seat at the table and a voice in these debates, because there is so much to learn from them. My hope is that we unite as a network and use our strength in numbers to bring that knowledge and experience to the fore.”
