Two Moons project marking UN International Day of Older Persons

In keeping with the 2019 theme “The Journey to Age Equality”, the Erasmus+ funded ‘Two Moons’ project, a 2-year pan-European initiative, is making available My Human Rights, My Wellbeing booklet in four languages, English, Finnish, Italian and Romanian. This booklet highlights the inequalities older persons in Europe experience in their daily life. It aims to raise awareness among older persons of their rights as protected under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD); and by so doing empower them to safeguard their well-being. The stories also draw attention to the existence of age inequalities and the societal and structural issues such as ageism which permit older people to be treated differently and denied their rights.
