The Longevity Week

november 15-19 2021

The Longevity Week

The theme of this year’s Longevity Forum and Longevity Week is Sustainability in a Decade of Healthy Ageing where we will be focusing on the future of longer living from health to the future of work. We believe there is no one solution to greater lifespans but through addressing the challenges of ageing societies globally we can strive to ensure healthier, longer lives can be achieved by all. Longevity Week will be kicked off in Glasgow at COP26 with our annual Longevity Forum on November 9th.  If you’re interested in hosting a Longevity Week 2021 event, please email laura@thelongevityforum.com.

The idea of Longevity Week was borne out of the success of our inaugural Forum which took place in November 2018 and already saw a few fringe events take place during the week of the Forum. It soon became apparent that the mission of the Forum, its convening power and the range of issues that we set out to address, had a multiplying effect and that one day was simply not sufficient to discuss all the major longevity challenges and opportunities at the intersection of science and society.

It is thus that we decided in May of 2019 to develop Longevity Week as an extension of the mission of the Forum, to promote dialogue and test ideas on the future of longevity. 

It is a challenging but an exciting and important mission. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
