We are grateful to Soroptimist International for their support for the Age With Rights campaign this year.

Global Rally

On 3rd March 2022, we will organise a Global Rally, which will be a key part of the Age With Rights campaign and will take the form of a 24 hour virtual event ahead of the 12th Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing session (OEWG12) due to take place on 11-14th April 2022.

This is an opportunity for us to mobilise existing and new advocates to support the call for a UN convention and to push governments to participate actively and show their support in the upcoming 12th OEWG session.

Colour

Shout out “Age with Rights!” by using the colour orange!

Here are some ideas:

  • In meetings, wear your most prominent piece of orange clothing (i.e. an orange hat, scarf or top)
  • Put up an orange banner or create an orange sign somewhere in your office or meeting room with the “Age with Rights!” slogan
  • Use the red-orange colour in your digital communications. The colour code is #FF3300 or RBG: R255,B51,G0.

Personal and Organisational Branding

You, and your organisation, are invited to incorporate the “Age with Rights” slogan into your brand.

Add “Age with Rights” onto stationery items and into your email signatures, or include “Age with Rights” where appropriate, and possible, as a byline alongside your logo. Please follow the instructions above for colour and use ‘Gill Sans MT’ font.
