October 3, 2019 I will attend an afternoon meeting at the UN Department of Global Communities and Civil Society. This meeting will be a briefing on the preparation for the 14th UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice around the world.
The UN has designated actual day of observance for International Day of Older persons is October 1, 2019, but the Un will have a general assembly on October 10, “The Journey to age equality” that I will attend. Currently, there are 700 million people over the age of 60 and in 2030 they expect that number to reach 1.4 billion so this is an area that needs to be addressed.
