The UN Decade of Healthy Ageing in a Climate-changing World: new advocacy brief now available

There is no healthy ageing without a healthy planet. How can we both protect older people and recognise their contributions as change agents in the climate crisis?

A new advocacy brief in the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing Connection Series highlights how the health and wellbeing of older people are affected by climate change and how climate change is relevant across all four action areas of the Decade plan.

The brief also presents specific examples of what can be done to foster healthy ageing in ways that can also help adapt to, mitigate, and build resilience for the climate crisis.

What is the connection between climate change and health?

Responding to the climate crisis is crucial to making the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing a success. The World Health Organization’s COP26 Special Report is clear: climate change leads to poorer health outcomes and worsening health inequities, with disproportionate impacts on more disadvantaged populations such as older people.

Our environments play crucial roles in shaping our health and wellbeing, including our experience of ageing and the opportunities it offers. We each have something we can contribute towards building a better world for all: what actions will you take today?
