More than 50 experts on optimizing aging from around the globe are scheduled to participate February 26 to March 4 in the Age Without Borders Virtual Summit—possibly the largest virtual summit on aging ever held.
Experts from the United States, Europe, Japan, China, Australia, India, Russia, South Africa, and the tiny islands of Tasmania, Malta and Mauritius are sharing insights on health, travel, finance, aging in place, lifelong learning, and technology innovations.
“The art and science of aging—the future of aging will transform the world. How we choose to age and how our society chooses to deal with its aging population poses, along with climate change, the most critical choices we have before us,” says Age Without Borders organizer Kari Henley.
Age Without Borders's speakers include anti-ageism author Ashton Applewhite, Lyft’s Dan Trigub, leading gerontologist and author Dr. Bill Thomas, Kristine Carlson, National Council on Aging CEO James Firman, and, Jan Hively, Founder of the Pass It On Network
Other speakers include author of Live Long, Die Short and Masterpiece Living President Roger Landry, M.D., author Joy Loverde, Paul Irving, Milken Institute for the Future of Aging chairman, Michael Rossatto-Bennet, Director of Alive Inside, Stephen Johnston of Aging2.0, Dirk Jarre of EURAG and Anne-Sophie Parent, Secretary General of AGE Parent Europe. They share new research, dynamic best practices and news about global efforts in intimate conversations. The goal of the virtual summit, organizers say, is to bring down borders and biases, expand knowledge and reshape aging around the world.
