Older people already have their own graphic symbol

pictomayores65A “Graphic Symbol of Older People” was presented on June 8,  at the headquarters of the State Reference Center for Personal Autonomy and Technical Aid (Ceapat, by its acronym in Spanish) in Madrid, a freely used pictogram for the signage of spaces and uses preferential or suitable for the elderly.

This symbol is the result of the collaboration of Ceapat professionals and the LideA Forum (Senior Leadership, by its acronym in Spanish). In its preparation, the universal design and evaluation criteria recommended by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) were taken into account, for example, being applicable to both genders and conveying a realistic and positive vision of older people who actively participate and contribute to society. Throughout the process, more than 350 people participated, very diverse at a functional, generational and cultural level.

Although this symbol was conceived in Spain, its use and promotion are feasible at an international level.
