Proudly Celebrates

International Day of

Older Persons

October 1st

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.

2019 Theme: "The Journey to Age Equality"

"The 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize that development will only be achievable if it is inclusive of all ages.  Empowering older persons in all dimensions of development, including promoting their active participation in social, economic and political life, is one way to ensure their inclusiveness and reduce inequalities."

The 2019 Theme aims to: 

  • Draw attention to the existence of old age inequalities and how this often results from a cumulation of disadvantages throughout life, and highlight intergenerational risk of increased old age inequalities.

  • Bring awareness to the urgency of coping with existing — and preventing future — old age inequalities.

  • Explore societal and structural changes in view of life course policies: life-long learning, proactive and adaptive labour policies, social protection and universal health coverage.

  • Reflect on best practices, lessons and progress on the journey to ending older age inequalities and changing negative narratives and stereotypes involving "old age."
