A social experiment from Apia aims to challenge the misconceptions of age and ask, are our perceptions of getting older distorted?

The campaign, by DDB Group Melbourne which includes Rapp, DDB and Mango, taps into research uncovering that two third of respondents over 50 had faced age discrimination in their lives.

Apia Executive Manager, Geoff Keogh said: “The research we undertook revealed some startling insights into perceptions of age in Australia. It’s time to break through this stigma and start conversations around the topic.

"The social experiment highlighted an underlying prejudice that those involved may not have realised existed. Our campaigns aim to demonstrate that life experience should be recognised and respected.”
