The Fédération Internationale des Associations de Personnes Âgées (International Federation of Associations of the Elderly - FIAPA) adopted the Manifesto of Havana at the Colloque International des Droits des Personnes Âgées (Conference on the Rights of Older Adults in the World) held last April in Havana, Cuba. Marie Beaulieu participated in the elaboration of this manifesto calling for the mobilisation for "the rights of older people to remain active citizens who participate in social, economical, political and cultural activities of society and who build their own lives". 

This manifesto recalls the five fundamental rights of older adults: educational, cultural, political, economic and civil rights as well as the particular attention that must be paid to the rights of older women. The manifesto, which is a tool to promote the rights of older adults on an international scale, has been translated into French, English and Italian. In addition, the Chair participated in the translation of the document into English.
