The aging megatrend is now undeniable, and it’s built-in for decades to come. What will our society look like 20 years from now? What changes and leadership do we need to implement today, nearing the midpoint of the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing, to ensure we can meet the needs of our aging society? This panel will look out to the future and discuss ways to prepare for that future and the risks of inaction.
