Making rights real: the fight against ageism - AGE session at Fundamental Rights Forum

As part of the Fundamental Rights Forum, AGE is organizing a Forum paralell open session on Making rights real: the fight against ageism, which will further explore the drivers of ageism that act as barriers to the full and equal realisation of human rights in older age and examine how a rights-based approach can end poverty, reduce inequality and promote health and wellbeing in later life. It will call on human rights professionals from different fields to reflect on how they can integrate the fight against ageism in their work. And, since ageism cuts across the age spectrum, the session will also discuss ageism as it is experienced both by old and young people.
