21 August- World Senior Citizen's Day

othersPosted on 01 January 2050 by Luxembourg Expats

The World Senior Citizen's Day is celebrated on the 21st of August each year. It was first proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations on December 14, 1990.

 

The celebration took place for the first time on 1st October 1991. The day is known to increase awareness of the factors and issues that affect older adults, such as age deterioration and the study of problems that affect their lives, elder abuse. It is also a day to recognize and acknowledge the contributions of older people to society.

 

The World Senior Citizen's Day recognizes and acknowledges the contributions of older people to the society. It provides an opportunity to show our appreciation for their dedication, accomplishments, and services they give throughout their lives. Their wealth of knowledge, skill, and experience offer so much to the next generation. As technologies advance, these are the people who’ve experienced each step of change. Not only have they contributed to it, but also understand the benefits and drawbacks. They know life without the advancements that exist today. 

 

Our senior citizens are pioneers of science, medicine, psychology, civil rights and so much more. They deserve the respect and dignity their achievements earn them. People should be encouraged to support senior citizens to live their lives to the fullest and as independently as possible.
