October 1 is International Day of Older Persons (#UNIDOP). This year’s theme is: “Stepping into the Future: Tapping the Talents, Contributions and Participation of Older Persons in Society.”
The theme is about enabling and expanding the contributions of older people in their families, communities and societies at large. It focuses on the pathways that support full and effective participation in old age, in accordance with old persons’ basic rights, needs and preferences.
