They discussed the need for a convention to promote and protect the rights of older persons, which is an international effort that focuses on the concept that Everyone should grow old and prosper with dignity.

The committee is asking for worldwide support via attendance at UN sessions, membership in the Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People (GAROP); contacting government authorities and urging them to support a convention.
