International Day of Older Persons
This year, in commemoration of the International Day of Older Persons (1 October), the theme “The future we want: what older persons are saying” has been chosen to draw attention to the efforts of older persons, civil society organisations, United Nations organizations and Member States to place the issue of ageing on the international development agenda.
The NGO Committee on Ageing is celebrating the 2013 International Day of Older Persons. The commemoration will be held on Wednesday, 9 October 2013 from 10:00 AM-1:00 pm at the United Nations Headquarters (ECOSOC Chamber).
