International Day of the Elderly
On December 14, 1990, "United Nations (UN) instituted October 1 as the "International Day of the Elderly". Since then, that date has been taken to generate actions and awareness campaigns regarding the place occupied by the elderly and the opportunities and challenges presented by aging in the face of different scenarios.
From the IAGG we are developing not only our International and Regional Congresses but also different Workshops and Working Groups on topics related to Human Rights, Loneliness, Healthy Aging,Ageism and above all disseminating Gerontology worldwide.
It is our desire to celebrate this day to make the elderly evident and present within society in an active and constant as well as participatory way.
