This statistic is shocking. It means half of the world’s population feels negatively about ageing and people who are older.

But there is hope.

Thanks to the Every Age Counts campaign In Australia, we’re leading the world in learning how to end ageism. However, it is a long journey ahead. Social and cultural change doesn’t happen quickly.
