Ageism is everywhere! Start with the basics and get informed!

What is it like to face gender inequality and ageism?

How does ageism affect your right to work, access health, social protection and housing?

Did you know that older migrants struggle with additional disadvantages?

The best way to tackle ageism is to support intergenerational contacts and cooperation!

Older people do have intimate relationships: time to break the taboos!

Ageism is an additional exclusion mechanism for older people experiencing racism.

Because of ageism, abuse and mistreatment against older adults are less visible.

We do not stop to contribute to society as we age… far from it!

Some develop a disability with age, some age with disability but all have equal rights!

Blow the 70 candles with us to remind that Human Rights do not diminish with age!
