International Day of Older Persons

International Day of Older Persons

October 1st of every year marks the International Day of Older Persons.  It is an occasion to celebrate older persons’ contributions to society.  It is also an opportunity  to educate ourselves on issues of concern such as the impact of ageism seen during the pandemic and, going forward, the need for digital equity for all ages so that no one is left behind.  

GRAN invites you to reflect on and celebrate your own contributions to your family and your community.  May we also suggest watching the 11-minute video, Change The Way You Think About Age or perhaps attending an online event such as the UN’s Digital Equity for All Ages webinar. You may also wish to learn what you can do to join the global community in the fight against ageism. 

However you mark this day, we wish you a happy International Day of Older Persons!
