October 01 – International Day of Older Persons (World Elders Day). Theme for 2012: “Longevity: Shaping the Future”

The International Day of Older Persons is observed on October 1 each year. On 14 December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly designated 1 October the International Day of Older Persons.

The theme of the 2012 commemoration is “Longevity: Shaping the Future”. Ageing and health was also the theme of this year’s World Health Day on 7 April. These themes focus on how healthy behaviors throughout life can help older men and women lead full and productive lives and be a resource for their families and communities.
