On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Article 25 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU which officially recognizes “the right of the elderly to lead a life of dignity and independence and to participate in social and cultural life” (right which was not present in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), EICA is pleased to join the #OldLivesMatter campaign, an exceptional and unprecedented mobilization of the global geriatric and gerontological community to defend the rights of the elderly.

Launched by the French Society of Geriatrics and Gerontology (Société Française de Gériatrie et Gérontologie – SFGG), with the support of 42 other organizations from 29 different countries, it intends to fight against anti-old racism and raise awareness among citizens, media and institutions.
