About this event

Almost 700 million people are now over the age of 60. By 2050, 2 billion people, over 20 per cent of the world’s population, will be 60 or older.

International Day for Older Persons raises awareness of issues affecting older people and is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and the economy.
