The EU Agency for fundamental rights (FRA) will participate in a roundtable event marking the end of #AgeingEqual global campaign against ageism, and the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The event aims to gather commitment to tackle ageism at EU level. It will be held by AGE Platform Europe, which led the campaign in collaboration with the European Youth Forum.

The FRA, based on its 2018 Fundamental rights report’s focus chapter on ‘Shifting perceptions: towards a rights-based approach to ageing’, will highlight aspects of how ageism affects the human rights of older people.
