Human rights advocates around the world have long argued that ageism is a barrier to older people receiving protections through general human rights provisions.
Historically, Australia has played an important role in leading the world on passing and implementing conventions designed to dismantle prejudice and discrimination. However, thus far, Australia has not played a comparable role in working for the establishment of an International Convention on the Rights of Older People. It's time to step up.
Join EveryAGE Counts for a discussion on how we can galvanise and mobilise Australian Government leadership domestically and on the global stage in the creation of a UN Convention on the Rights of Older Persons.
