UN International Day of Older Persons (UNIDOP) 2021 is being presented by UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and the NGO Committees on Ageing in New York, Geneva and Vienna. This year’s theme of “Digital Equity for All Ages” predicates the need for access and meaningful participation in the digital world by older persons. The 2021 UNIDOP will provide a platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue and serve as a call to action. The #UNIDOP2021 will adopt a person-centered, human rights approach to ensure digital equity including adequate policies, access, digital literacy and safety for individuals of all ages.
