We have arrived at an era where people are living longer. Along with this trend comes new challenges and the science, art, and practice of longevity is alive with a horizon of possibilities to highlight the benefits of living longer. Radical ideas and interdisciplinary approaches have been introduced to understand the experience of aging from the perspectives of health, labor, housing, transport, urban planning, leisure, social participation, education and intergenerational relationships. This conference aims to bring together leading thinkers and practitioners to feature some of the best practices in the field of population aging.
