EU Leads The Rally


   LEAD CAMPAIGNER: AGE Platform Europe

   SCALE: European

   MISSION OR VISION: To date, no international human rights treaty has been adopted without the support of European States. This campaign is asking for European States to mobilise and speak up in favour of a new UN convention with the support of older people.

   MAIN ACTIVITIES: Incentivise the European Union and its Member States to get actively involved in the UN Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing and engage with older people on the potential added value of a new UN convention. In addition, encourage and support NGOs to reach out to their governments to debate the necessity of a shift in the way we think and address older age in policymaking and how a UN convention could help.

   TIME FRAME: 2021–present
