    ‘The Right to Work and Access to the Labour Market in Older Age’ (5th September from 14:00-15:00 BST)

    The right to work and access to the labour market is one of the new areas of older people’s human rights that will be discussed at the 11th session of the Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing in New York from 6-9th April 2020. The UN will soon call for written submissions on this topic, which will play an important role in shaping the debates that will happen at the 11th session.  A strong civil society response to this consultation is vital. This webinar will explore some of the key issues and barriers around the right to work and access to the labour market in older age. It will provide examples of how to provide a strong substantive response to the UN consultation’s guiding questions with examples from the Chilean national context.  

    • Panelist: Consuelo Moreno (Fundación Oportunidad Mayor, Chile)
    • Moderator: Nena Georgantzi (AGE Platform Europe and GAROP Steering Group member)
