Safeguarding the Human Rights of Older People through an Intergenerational Solidarity and Active Citizenship Approach

Sage Advocacy received funding through the KA2 - Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices stream of Erasmus+, administered by Léargas. The project will focus on safeguarding older persons’ legal and human rights through active citizenship, an inter-generational approach, and involves a partnership between Sage Advocacy (Ireland), Pro Senectute (Austria), Tulip Foundation (Bulgaria) and BAGSO (Germany).

On 15th November 2022, Sage Advocacy hosted the first 3-day teaching, training, and learning event from this project. The theme of this event was Human Rights & Older Age – Where Rhetoric meets Reality. The activities sought to ground rhetoric around human rights issues with the experiences and perspectives of older people, professionals, and state bodies.
