The Everyday Ageism Project aims to capture people's everyday experiences of ageism. Ageism is most commonly defined as the stereotyping of and discrimination against someone based on their age. Since the term was first introduced in 1969, very little is known about the meaning of these experiences, their consequences and how they affect people. This is a place for people to share their experiences. By sharing your story you're showing that ageism does exist, you are showing that it is a valid problem worth discussing and you are helping us understand the many diverse ways that age discrimination can affect people's everyday lives.

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.
