#AgeProud

#AgeProud is a campaign challenging the outdated, ageist attitudes that prevent too many of us from making the most of our longer lives.

For UN International Day of Older Persons 2019, the Centre for Ageing Better is backing the global and growing #AgeProud movement to celebrate ageing positively.

We need your help  join the campaign by sharing a selfie, comment or the links below, or view and share our resources.

On International Day of Older Persons, mayors and council leaders across the UK have pledged to tackle ageism

"Bangladeshi ladies, the same age as me, are not thinking in my way at all. People don’t like to change, they are just traditional."

"I think I’m quite assertive despite experiencing a sense of being on the margins of mainstream society, I am determined to be me."

Sue

Why Sue is #AgeProud

"I think it’s just a sense of packing in as much as possible ‘cos the older you get, the more aware you are of mortality at the end of it."

Pete

Why Pete is #AgeProud

"I don’t think to myself, I can’t do that, I can’t do this. It’s the photographic background, I look at things all the time and I can’t help but do it."

Ron

Why Ron is #AgeProud

"I went back to college to do an HNC in management but I couldn't get a job. I think that’s to do with age."
