International Day of Older Persons


The International Day of Older Persons is celebrated on 1 October each year to recognise and appreciate the contributions and achievements of older persons in society. This day provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the issues that affect older individuals and promote their rights, well-being and dignity. It also aims to challenge ageism and stereotypes associated with ageing.

This day is dedicated to honouring and recognising the contributions and value of older people in society. It is a day to celebrate the wisdom and experience of those who have come before us and to promote the importance of respect and inclusion for all older people.

Older persons have a wealth of knowledge, experience and wisdom that can greatly benefit society. They have made significant contributions throughout their lives as professionals, parents, caregivers, leaders and mentors. The International Day of Older Persons serves as a reminder to value and respect the elderly population for their unique perspectives and insights. It encourages us to create inclusive communities where older individuals can actively participate in decision-making processes, access quality healthcare services, enjoy social connections and lead fulfilling lives.

The music industry is often associated with youth, but there are many talented songwriters and musicians who have achieved success later in life.

Older creators bring a wealth of experience and wisdom to their craft. They have lived through different eras and witnessed first-hand the evolution of musical styles. Their unique perspective allows them to create music that is rich in storytelling and emotional depth. Let’s celebrate and appreciate the contributions of older persons in the music industry, as they continue to inspire younger generations.
