October 1st is the International Day of Older Persons and we want to know what YOU are doing to raise awareness in your community about global ageing and the important issues that face our world’s elders.

Here at IAHSA we are partnering with AARP International to host My Generation: Connecting, Giving, Enjoying on Tuesday, October 2. This event will be the American debut of the BBC’s acclaimed Documentary “Power to the People: the Great Granny Chart Invasion”. After the film, attendees will have the opportunity to share their ideas and insights with award-winning investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker Tim Samuels.

But the celebration goes beyond this event. Organizations and communities around the world around are already planning their celebrations. Organizations in Gisborne, New Zealand are working togehter to host an expo and the city of Leeds in the United Kingdom is planning a programme along with a week-long series of community events.

Share what’s happening in your community or plan your own event and help us spread the word about the International Day of Older Persons!
