Activism, Perception, Intergenerational *, and Finance
Following on our successful events in Denver and San Francisco, we’re heading to Washington DC on December 12th, 2018 for our largest event yet. In partnership with Silvernest, Age Without Borders, and Stria News we’ll be along the wharf at Make Offices for a full evening of engaging speakers and discussion.
In Stria’s first State of the Longevity Market Survey, readers (who are all professionals working in aging or the longevity market) said that the most important issue for the field to address right now is public awareness of the impact of an aging society. At this event, we will look at various aspects of that impact, and brainstorm how those of us in the field can make a difference.
The program will include brief presentations on:
- Perceptions of Aging
- Work & Money Needs
- Intergenerational Benefits/Opportunities
- Aging Activism
We’ll follow with group ideation of ways we might raise public awareness followed by networking and discussion.
Confirmed speakers include:

Mr. Frederick, Founder & CEO of Smart Living 360, describes a future where people can trade the individual isolation of their single family homes or institutional isolation often found at Shady Acres for rich connections in next generation housing in intergenerational, walkable mixed-used locations. It turns out that this future is happening today.
