Day of Older Persons
The General Assembly designated 1 October the International Day of Older Persons
by resolution 45/106 of 14 December 1990, following up on United Nations initiatives
such as the Vienna International Plan of Action on Ageing, adopted by the 1982
World Assembly on Ageing and endorsed later that year by the General Assembly.
