GAROP Advocacy Tools

Here you can find a variety of advocacy tools and materials produced by GAROP to support you in your work to strengthen older people’s rights, amplify older people’s voices, and engage effectively in the Open-Ended Working Group on Ageing (OEWG) process. You can find further resources from some of our members and external sources in the Resources pages of our website.  If you are an NGO that supports our vision, mission and values, you can apply to join GAROP to receive further updates and information from our Secretariat by email.
