Human rights are for all ages - The EU must lead the rallying for a UN Convention!
While the EU leads the promotion of human rights worldwide, it still needs to demonstrate in practice its commitment to equality at all ages.
The document 'HUMAN RIGHTS ARE FOR ALL AGES - The EU must lead the rallying for a UN Convention!' has been published as part of AGE's #EULeadsTheRally campaign, to help mobilize EU member states and encourage them to speak up in favour of a United Nations' convention on older people's rights. It explains why it is timely to act now, what is the added value of a UN convention and what are the next steps.
Our campaign document is available in a full and short version, and in English and French.
