Courtesy, Humanity's Older Persons Around the World!

Though 'Youthful Years' may

seem long, long ago . . .

“Older Persons”

know how to gracefully grow.

 

Older Persons know how to wisely live.

Of good advice, Older Persons

can surely give.

“Older Persons”

can be a compass to guide . . .

Older Persons can lead in sure stride.

 

Youth can learn from

“Older Persons”

who are our aged and seasoned

Trees of Wisdom

who surely know . . . and can

surely show the 

wise and prudent way to go.

From whom did you inherit "YOUR" 

youthful resiliency?

ANSWER:

Most likely from older generations of grandparents of whom you may

now consider to be old-aged,

old-fashioned and out of date.

NO!  Older persons are not discarded relics of years gone by!

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities, with the past three years intensifying the socioeconomic, environmental, health and climate related impacts on the lives of older persons, especially older women who constitute the majority of older persons.

While older women continue to meaningfully contribute to their political, civil, economic, social and cultural lives; their contributions and experiences remain largely invisible and disregarded, limited by gendered disadvantages accumulated throughout the life course. The intersection between discrimination based on age and gender compounds new and existing inequalities, including negative stereotypes that combine ageism and sexism.

The 2022 theme of International Day of Older Persons (UNIDOP) serves as a hallmark and reminder of the significant role older women play in traversing global challenges and contributing to their solutions with resilience and fortitude.

Recognizing the vital contributions of older women and promoting the inclusion of their voices, perspectives and needs are critical to creating meaningful policies to enhance a holistic response to local, national, and global challenges and catastrophes, UNIDOP 2022 is a call to action and opportunity aimed to embrace the voices of older women and showcase their resilience and contributions in society, while promoting policy dialogues to enhance the protection of older persons human rights and recognize their contributions to sustainable development.

some very important

 QUESTIONS?

“Toward Older Persons . . .

How do we behave?”

Do we treat elderly

“Seniors”

with deserving kindness?

Do we treat them with utmost respect?

Or do we carelessly cast them aside

to utter poverty and neglect?

Do we abandon them to homelessness?
