International Seniors' Day On 1 October, it is International Senior Citizens' Day. This day is organised to draw attention to the effects of an ageing population on our society and to stress the importance of allowing people to grow older with dignity. The world's population is changing slowly. Over the next 50 years, the number of older people in the world will rise from 600 million to almost 2 billion. In other words, today 1 in 10 people is over 60, and in 2050 it will be 1 in 5. For the first time in history, there will be more people over 60 than there are children. That number will increase to 1 in 3 by 2150. This year's theme is Sustainability and Inclusion of Older People in an Urban Environment.
