International Day of Older Persons
International Day of Older Persons highlights important contributions of the elderly to society and acknowledges current challenges of ageing, such as senescence and elder abuse. The day was created by the United Nations General Assembly to promote initiatives that protect and respect generations above the age of 65. Action is taken against ageism, stereotyping, and discrimination on the basis of a person’s age.
