Human rights are ageless

No matter our age, all of us are entitled to the same human rights. But stereotypes, myths and misconceptions about ageing, ageism and older people can lead to some rights being denied. This WEAAD, we want everyone to challenge their views about ageing and to join in the conversation about what it means to get older in our society.

We are all going to get older (if we are lucky!) but would we want to do it in a community that views older people like ours does?

Is ageing different to what it used to be? How do different generations view ageing? How do the media and advertising industries portray ageing? Do we naturally get wiser as we get older?
