Webinar Announcement: Human Rights of Older Persons and Agenda 2030


With a rapidly ageing global population, addressing the and harnessing the opportunities that older people experience is of great importance.  In August 2018, the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) hosted the 14th Global Conference on Ageing in Toronto, Canada, with 1200 experts gathering from around the world.  The theme of this conference was Towards a Decade of Healthy Ageing – From Evidence to Action and the IFA is compelled to mobilize the knowledge and learning from this conference with its members and beyond.  To ensure that evidence continues to be translated following the conference, the IFA is hosting a Post-Conference Education Webinar Series to mobilize conference themes and presentations to a larger audience.
Human Rights of Older Persons and Agenda 2030 is the first webinar of the series and will address key areas for implementation of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that ensures it fulfils its mandate for older persons.
Webinar Information:
Tuesday 29 January 2019, 12:00 – 1:00pm EST
Presenters:
  • Ken BluestoneHead of Policy and Influencing, Age International
  • Erica DharDirector of Global Alliances, AARP
  • Cynthia StuenIFA Representative at the United Nations in New York

This webinar is a part of the Post-Conference Education Webinar Series’ first learning program: Combating Ageism.  Discrimination against individuals based on their age has serious consequences on many aspects of an older person’s life, such as health, wellbeing, employment, housing and access to social and care systems.
