The Longevity Week

VIRTUAL, 9-13 november 2020

The Longevity Week

The Longevity Week took place on 9-13 November 2020 virtually as an initiative of The Longevity Forum (the Forum). It brought together a diverse group of strategic partners of the Forum, supporters and participants whose goals are aligned with the mission of the Forum – to achieve longer, healthier and more fulfilled lives for as many people as possible.

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 to develop Longevity Week as an extension of the mission of the Forum, to promote dialogue and test ideas on the future of longevity. The theme of this year’s Longevity Forum and Longevity Week is “The Age of Resilience” where we will be focusing on the challenges presented by COVID-19 and discuss ideas on how we can prevent and combat future pandemics to ensure healthier, longer lives can be achieved by all.

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