The United Nations General Assembly voted to establish October 1st as the ‘International Day of Older Persons’ as recorded in Resolution 45/106. The holiday was observed for the first time on October 1st, 1991.
Following this tradition, longevity research activists from around the world call this day and the month of October; International Longevity Day and International Longevity Month.
Events focused on supporting biomedical research to further understand the biology of aging and extend healthy human lifespan, take place internationally throughout the entire month of October.
Since 2013 hundreds of events have been organized and we hope this tradition will continue and will keep strengthening the longevity advocacy community.
If you organize an event, create a publication or make any other effort to promote International Longevity Day/Month, we would love to learn about it! You can let us know by emailing us at [email protected]
