When is the International Day of Older Persons?

The International Day of Older Persons is on the 1st October.

The International Day of Older Persons is an opportunity to highlight the important contributions that older people make to society and raise awareness of the issues and challenges of ageing in today’s world (see the United Nations Programme on Ageing).  Resolution 45/106, passed by the United Nations General Assembly on 14th December 1990, declared 1st October to be the International Day of Older Persons. This observance is similar to National Grandparents Day in the United States and Canada, the Double Ninth Festival in China and Respect for the Aged Day in Japan.
