There has been emerging a tradition by longevity researchers and activists around the world to organize events dedicated to promotion of longevity research on or around October 1 – the UN International Day of Older Persons.
This day is sometimes referred to in some parts of the longevity activists community as the “International Longevity Day”. As this is the official UN Day of Older Persons, this provides the longevity research activists a perfect opportunity to emphasize the importance of aging and longevity research for the development of effective health care for the elderly, in the wide public as well as among decision makers.
Events and promotions around that day, increasing education on biological and biomedical research of aging and longevity, are now planned in over 30 countries, on 5 continents. The support ranges from small, emerging local grassroots groups of longevity research activists to scientific societies. http://www.longevityforall.org/international-longevity-day-october-1-2015/
