The Global Alliance for the Rights of Older Persons has announced an upcoming webinar on August 22, 2019 from 7-8 a.m. edt (yes that's correct 7-8 AM). Here's info about the webinar:
Access to Justice is one of the new areas of older people’s human rights that will be discussed at the 11th session of the Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing in New York from 6-9th April 2020. The UN will soon call for written submissions on this topic, which will play an important role in shaping the debates that will happen at the 11th session. A strong civil society response to this consultation is vital. This webinar will explore some of the key issues and barriers around access to justice in older age. It will also offer tips and support on how you can prepare high quality substantive inputs to the upcoming UN consultation.
- Moderator: Susan Somers (INPEA and GAROP Steering Group member)
