We work to promote policy dialogue on various facets of demographic change across the UNECE region, with a particular focus on ageing.

In focus



The International Day of Older Persons 2021 calls for Digital Equity for All Ages.

In our increasingly digital world, being offline often means being excluded. Increased policy efforts to ensure the digital inclusion of older persons are key to ensuring that everyone, regardless of age, can access and effectively use the technologies needed to meaningfully and safely participate in the digital world.

Join us on 24 November for a one-day policy seminar that will focus on three policy challenges associated with ageing in the digital era: the need to enhance digital skills and literacy, the need to ensure access to services that increasingly move online, and the protection of human rights.
