International Day of Older Persons

Today, the 25th Anniversary of the United Nations International Day of Older Persons (IDOP), we are pleased to share Kim Samuel’s latest publication in the Huffington Post, “Promoting Inclusion in an Aging World“.

Kim encourages everyone from policy-makers, to planners and families to “have an honest conversation about combatting social isolation in an aging world”. Just as the IDOP celebration demonstrates that an age inclusive agenda is crucial to promote equity, wellness and shared prosperity for all, Kim provides examples from across the globe offering opportunity for dialogue, consideration and action.
