- Post an image to the UNFPA or HelpAge’s Facebook wall with a short text of 100 words or less.

Nominations will close on 23 November 2012.All qualifying nominees will be posted on the 60 over 60 webpage of the 7 Billion Actions platform.
An expert panel of respected public figures working with older people, or older people themselves, will narrow the list down to 60 people.
The panel’s selections will be announced in December and the 60 over 60 list will be featured online and in the media.
