Longevity Day Demonstration – Tel Aviv – 1 October 2023

As a part of the Longevity Day/Month campaign, the Vetek (Seniority)Association – The Movement for Longevity and Quality of Life (Israel) conducted a demonstration on October 1, at 10.00 am (Israel time), at the Democracy Square (Azrieli-Kaplan intersection) in Tel Aviv. The demonstrationtook place on October 1, the “International Longevity Day”.
The official theme of the demonstration is:
*Raising awareness for healthy longevity*
The topics that we advocated for at the demonstration included: raising the old-age pensions, improving the rights of older persons, as well as enhancing research, development and education for healthy longevity and prevention of aging-related diseases.
The demonstration was initiated by the Vetek Association – the Movement for Longevity and Quality of Life, yet additional organizations and individuals have joined.
We hope that this demonstration will encourage the struggle for the status and health of older people, not only in Israel, but around the world. And indeed, on October 1, the “International Longevity Day”, with the encouragement of the International Longevity Alliance (ILA), there took place partner demonstrations and events in several other countries: Belgium, Spain, Germany, US. We hope for more initiatives take place. If you organize more demonstrations and other events (live or online) for the Longevity Day/Month, please let us know so we can synergize and publicize together.‐tional-longevity-day-month-campaign-in-october/
