About the Conference

Population ageing is arguably one of the most significant social transformations of the twenty-first century, with implications for nearly all sectors of society, including labour and financial markets, the demand for goods and services, such as housing, health, transportation and social protection, as well as family structures and intergenerational ties.  The risk of being underprepared for the impact of population ageing will be great, but equally the potential upsides and extraordinary opportunities are underestimated.

The IFAs 15th Global Conference on Ageing, entitled “Rights Matter,” is an international platform to improve our understanding of age-friendly environments, to debate the solutions to address inequalities, to confront the reality of ageism, and to delve into what it means to enable the functional ability of an older person.  Driving the agenda of the world’s population ageing takes connected, engaged and interested delegates from all parts of the world.  Take action and be accountable to current and future generations of citizens who contribute a lifetime of experiences to society.
