Dr. Cynthia Stuen, is the Main Representative from The International Federation On Ageing to the United Nations, the Chair of the NGO New York Committee On Ageing, and a leader in advocacy for Human Rights of older adults. Doctor Stuen gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the United Nations Open-Ended Working Group On Ageing as it explores the gaps in human rights for older adults worldwide. In 2024 a core group will report on the need to cover specific rights for older persons, and methods of monitoring how nations enforce those rights.
This report may become part of the very first convention, which is a document like a treaty that will have influence in the lives of millions of older people. Doctor Stuen explains how you can impact age and gender equality and lend a voice to the campaign for human rights that includes all of us. Let's make the slogan, Nothing About Us Without Us, a reality.
