60o60Not a competition as such, but an inspirational call to nominate your outstanding over 60's.

To complement the release of a new report, Ageing in the 21st Century: A Celebration and a Challenge, UNFPA and HelpAge International are creating a list of 60 inspiring and influential older people over 60, and need your help.

You can nominate yourself, or an older person you admire, beginning today. Perceptions of the world’s ‘age burden’ are outdated. Their contributions will become increasingly important as the world grows older.
