Round-table discussion on ageing and the rights of older people

The agency will participate in a round-table event marking the end of #AgeingEqual global campaign against ageism and the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The event will take place in Brussels on 6 December. It will be held by AGE Platform Europe, which led the campaign, in collaboration with the European Youth Forum.

The event aims to gather commitment to tackle ageism at EU level. FRA, based on its 2018 Fundamental Rights Report focus chapter Shifting perceptions: towards a rights‑based approach to ageing, will highlight aspects of how ageism affects the human rights of older people
