European Federation denounces discriminatory narrative around older persons

EURAG-logo In a press statement issued on 3rd June, the European Federation of Older Persons – EURAG denounces the way older persons are shown in the media as a homogeneous group of frail, inactive people who tend to be a burden to society.

This does not reflect the reality of the very diverse older population, nor the active engagement and contribution of most of them as grand-parents, carers consumers, artists, researchers…

EURAG asks the media to “convey a correct, differentiated and non-discriminatory image of older persons”.
