Join online discussions and declare October 1 International Day of Older Persons in your community
The Alberta Council on Aging
is asking municipalities to declare October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons. International Day of Older Persons is a day to recognize and acknowledge older Albertans and their contributions to our communities; raise awareness about seniors’ interests and concerns; and address misconceptions about older persons and aging.
The Alberta Council on Aging is also launching the Let’s Stop Ageism
campaign on October 1. Incorporating digital marketing, arts-based events, and educational programming, this campaign will address ageism head on, raise awareness, promote discussion, and invite community members of all ages to embrace and celebrate older people. Participate on social media using the hashtag #LetsStopAgeism.
