The Ageing & Development programme is organising free workshops on older people and development.
Ageing affects us all and despite many differences between the lives of older people in Ireland and in developing countries, there are also many similarities. The workshops will explore the role and lives of older people in Ireland and developing countries, looking at some of the human rights and justice issues they face including:
- perceptions about older people in society
- income security and
- the role of humanrights in the lives of older people
