Visual impressions of the touring exhibition

The touring exhibition "What’s old anyway?" in New York, UN Headquarters (23 – 26 July 2018)

In July, the exhibition was presented during the 9th session of the OEWG-A (United Nations Open-ended Working Group on Ageing). The OEWG-A is a working group of the United Nations that takes place every year with focus on strengthening the rights of older persons and fighting against discrimination because of age.
In cooperation with Ambassador Schulz, Ambassador and OEWG-A-chair Moritán and Prof. Dr. von Schwanenflügel (BMFSFJ), the exhibition was opened by a reception on 23 July 2018 in UN Headquarters. The touring exhibition accompanied the OEWG-A-session until 26 July 2018 and in this way, the participants of the OEWGA – delegations of all UN-member states and NGO’s - were invited to discuss about their ideas of "images of age" outside the working group-sessions.
