We are inviting all willing partners to join us in planning for this years international day for older persons celebrations which comes on 1st October every years.
The theme for this year’s International Day of Older Persons is “Stepping into the Future: Tapping the Talents, Contributions and Participation of Older Persons in Society.”
We will raise awareness about the importance of older people being able to participate in every part of their lives.
We will raise awareness about how ageism can be a barrier to older people’s participation in society, family and everyday life.
Changing social norms takes time and we will continue to raise awareness about the impact ageism has on older people.
We encourage partners to organise activities that address these problem.
