View Dr Kalache's presentation for the Longevity Revolution


As generations are living for longer than they ever have before, much of the world finds itself on the cusp of a 'longevity revolution'. Policies and systems need to be put in place to support this.

The concept of ‘active ageing' is more than simply getting older. It's about ageing with the best possible quality of life. There are four basic tenets that provide the key to ageing well; they are Good Health, Lifelong Learning, Participation and Security.

When individuals and policy makers begin to look at the life course through the 'active ageing' lens, with a strong focus on the 'four pillars', we begin to build a society for all ages.
