A Conversation on Generations

December 5, 2013
Washington, DC

 
From now until 2029, a baby boomer will reach the age of 65 every eight seconds. With this gamechanging number in mind, this event fostered a creative dialogue to identify opportunities for savvy companies to engage a growing new market of tech comfortable and capable potential customers. The second Conversation on Generations convened senior executives, architects, tech innovators, developers, and other thought leaders to discuss the ways in which America’s aging population is changing the world of design.

    The New Old Age

    Since the turn of the 20th century, average life expectancy has been rising steadily. In the United States, we can now expect to live an average of three decades longer than our great-grandparents. As we collectively age, our societal understandings of the rhythms of an average lifespan have been slow to adapt. With nearly 10,000 baby boomers moving into retirement every day, The Atlantic will examine the shape of the new old age and its impact on society.
