The Everyday Ageism Project

The Everyday Ageism Project aims to capture people’s everyday experiences of ageism. Research by EURAGE shows that across the European region, ageism is the most commonly experienced form of prejudice, yet relatively little is known about how it is experienced, who experiences it and the situations which may leave people vulnerable to age discrimination.

By providing a safe forum for people to anonymously share their experiences, the project aims to understand the consequences of ageism and the ways that age discrimination can affect people’s everyday lives. We also wish to encourage people to share their stories to show that ageism does exist and that it is a valid problem worth discussing.

Lack of Respect Towards Children

38 year old women observes that ageism affects us all

“I notice (and understand the reasons behind) the assumptions made by older people towards children.  However they often show them a lack of respect. I feel sad, that ageism occurs by people of all ages to all ages.”
