Global Conference 2015

As a growing population of older adults emerges, a revolution in the culture of aging is underway. Older adults increasingly seek to age in place and at home. They're staying in the workforce longer, and expressing new attitudes about health, housing, transportation and education. They're upending convention, remaining active and contributing members of their communities. Cities are on the frontlines of this revolution. How cities and city leaders deal with the challenges and opportunities presented by this demographic change will affect a massive number of people across the age spectrum - and across the world. What will make cities age-friendly for the future? What innovations lie ahead? Which cities might lead and which might lag? Our panel of thought leaders will challenge Global Conference participants to think differently about the future of cities.
