Ageism appears in the form of stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination against older persons. Too often it remains overlooked, even invisible, yet it has many negative consequences on people’s quality of life and experience of ageing.
Prepared during the Slovenian Presidency to the Council of the European Union, the conference is organised in cooperation between the Slovenian Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, AGE Platform Europe and the Federation of Pensioners’ Associations of Slovenia (ZDUS).
Participants will discuss how to address ageism in adopting a rights-based and life-course perspective and promoting intergenerational cooperation.
The conference will be live-streamed.
