Our Mission

longer, healthier lives

The Longevity Forum is a not-for-profit initiative committed to achieving longer, healthier and more fulfilled lives for as many people as possible. We believe that, if managed correctly, increased longevity presents a wonderful human opportunity.

our approach

Unlocking the longevity dividend will require multi-disciplinary collaboration and a radical rethink of how we approach all of life and not just the end of life.

What makes us different

We engage

We engage all stakeholders with the power to influence change – key opinion leaders from the worlds of policy, business, science, academia and civil society – and provide them with a platform for debate and action.

we focus on early change

To benefit from increased longevity, we advocate change from an early state stage of life. Our focus on the whole of lifespan is complementary to many valuable existing initiatives which focus on ageing and end of life.

we collaborate

Unlocking the longevity dividend will require multi-disciplinary collaboration and a radical rethink of how we approach all of life and not just the end of life.

Why Now?

A step change in life expectancy, which is already underway and is being driven by both scientific and technological progress, will have vast implications for individuals, governments and society as a whole. To ensure that increases in longevity benefit all of society, a true public and private partnership is required to drive change and create solutions needed to equip us for this new reality.
