The United Nations report presents the latest evidence on the nature and magnitude of ageism, as well as its determinants and impact. It also outlines a framework for action to reduce ageism including specific recommendations for different actors (e.g. government, UN agencies, civil society organisations, private sector).
The launch of this publication kicks off a global conversation on ageism that concerns us all and in which we all should have our say. Along with the report, the UN has therefore issued a toolkit on how to initiate your own conversations about ageism.
