Our rallying cry – “Age with Rights!” – was formed with input from members of our Global Alliance. Join this global campaign for a UN convention on the rights of older people to ensure equal protection of our human rights in older age.

  • Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings throughout life no matter where in the world.
  • As we age, our need for rights protection evolve with the complexity of ageing issues.
  • Universal Declaration of Human Rights document was drafted at a time when the “100 year” life was beyond imagination.
  • Existing human rights frameworks provide fragmented and inconsistent coverage on the human rights of older people and ageing issues in law and practice.
  • A convention is a universal legally-binding instrument that ensures, in older age, there are equal opportunities to participate and contribute, behaviours towards us are more respectful, and ageism is prohibited in the law.
  • Protecting the rights of older people through a convention will benefit all in society today and tomorrow.

We welcome ideas and support in broadcasting our collective global advocacy efforts, and in strengthening our impact by using our campaign slogan “Age with Rights!”
