#AgeWithRights Global Rally 2024

8-14 April 2024

The Global Rally is a key part of the Age With Rights campaign that provides opportunity for people around the world who support the stronger protection and promotion of older people’s human rights to unite in solidarity and call on governments to take action and support the drafting of the United Nations (UN) convention on the rights of older people people.

The Global Rally will consist of a series of unique campaign actions in different time zones throughout the week, organised by GAROP member organisations and other campaigners, activists and advocates for older people’s rights.
