The world is ageing rapidly. Today, there are over 810 million people over 60. By 2050, there will be 2 billion. So more people will be over 60 than under 15. 80 % of them are in developing countries, living in poverty and lacking access to services. Yet, older people remain invisible in development policies. HelpAge International through the global grassroots campaign- Age Demands Action, is supporting a growing army of campaigners, of all ages, across Europe. These campaigners want to see EU leaders make development policy age-friendly.
