We call on candidates and future MEPs to:
Enhance older persons’ rights through combating ageism and age-discrimination and put pressure on your government to:
- Ensure that the directive on equal treatment in the access to goods and services is finally adopted, and the full implementation of the Accessibility Act ensured.
- Monitor the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and ensure it is equally applied to older persons with disabilities
- Monitor the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women and of the EU gender equality provisions and ensure they are equally applied to older women;
- Support the debate at UN level around a possible international legal instrument to strengthen the protection of the human rights of older persons.
