Special Call for Submissions: Age-friendly Practices Against Ageism

Credit: Kate Holt/HelpAge International

The United Nations International Day of Older Persons (UNIDOP) 2016 is October 1. This year,  the theme is “Take A Stand Against Ageism”. Ageism is a serious and ubiquitous concern for older people, from the negative ways older people are portrayed in the media, to employment limitations, to social environments that restrict the full participation of older people in societies. To raise awareness for this year’s theme, we asked cities and communities that are part of the Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities to tell us about concrete actions that you have taken to combat ageism.
