Conference on "Microedadismos: Subtle discrimination".

 Type: Conference
 Line of Knowledge: Active aging and friendliness
 Location: Madrid

This face-to-face conference will try to define basic concepts such as ageism and micro-ageism and to delve into the existence of certain attitudes that, by action or omission, consciously or unconsciously, have been incorporated into the society in which we live and that perpetuate ageism.

During the day there will be the opinion and the protagonism of both recognized experts in the field, as well as older people who will tell in first person their vision and experience.

An event organized by the IMSERSO, which will take place next Tuesday, May 28, starting at 9:00 am.
