Towards a UN convention: how we're making a difference
Every year, we learn more about older people as older-age rights come under increasing focus at the UN.
This work is securing the backing of an increasing number of governments: in 2019 Cameroon and Nigeria spoke out for the first time at the UN in support of a convention – as a result of the pressure put on them by older people and civil society.
Our achievements are laying the groundwork for further success, but there's still more to do. Join us and add your voice to the call for a fairer world for older people. Get in touch to get involved. Get in touch to get involved.
"It was an honour to speak at the UN this week and share my perspective as an older person myself and the experiences of older people in my community in Tanzania. I was surprised by how much people appreciated my perspective." Elisha, from the Good Samaritan Social Service Trust in Tanzania.
