International Day Of Older Persons, 1st October 2009 - The 19th International Day of Older Persons is an occasion both for celebration and for serious reflection. It is an occasion to celebrate the older persons’ achievements and contributions to society. The motto “Towards a society for all ages”, chosen in 1991, again in 2002 during the Second World Assembly on Ageing in Madrid, and which is once more the focus of this year’s celebration, underlines the cross generational impacts of the challenges faced by the older persons.
