A Conversation on Generations

Washington, DC / December 5, 2013

The Atlantic's second Conversation on Generations convened leading scholars, demographers, health professionals, and urban planners to delve into the demographic shift underway as millions of baby boomers reach retirement age.

 
From now until 2029, a baby boomer will reach the age of 65 every eight seconds. With this gamechanging number in mind, the 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.
