Age with rights: Advocating for a UN Convention on the Rights of Older Persons
Despite long standing principles and plans for action on the rights of older people, there is no dedicated global human rights treaty that protects their rights. Supporting a UN Convention on the Rights of Older People would allow an explicit legal framework for governments and guidance that would enable them to ensure that older people’s rights are realised.
We’re participating in the #Agewithrights global rally by holding a roundtable conversation about rights, ageism, and the need for supporting a UN Convention on the Rights of Older Persons.
You’ll hear directly from Caroline Carroll, Robin Vote, Kevyn Morris, Natalie Clements, and Kathy Mansfield members of our National Older Persons Reference Group, who each have their own stories and views to share.
Join us on Zoom or Facebook Live on 3 March at 12PM (AEDT) for a live conversation about ageing with our rights protected.
