Welcome to the Global Coalition on Aging

During the 20th century, our lives have been extended by a stunning three decades. The consequences of this “longevity miracle” are even more profound today as many countries experience the combination of low fertility rates and the bulge of the 65+ population: worldwide 450 million people will turn 65 over the next 20 years, thus significantly increasing the proportion of people over age 65 compared to those under. Global aging will have immediate impact on the fiscal sustainability and political stability of nations worldwide. And yet, there has been neither public policy shifts nor social and cultural transformation in how we live that aligns to this truly massive change in human affairs.

The Global Coalition on Aging is committed to a vision where innovative market solutions enabled by progressive public policy create a framework for healthy and active aging. We will shape the public discussion on how policymakers, businesses and society at large can comprehensively address these new demographic realities and apply innovative solutions that recognize the opportunity of global aging.

Exclusive access to GCOA's insights on aging, data and analysis, our network of business leaders and other benefits is available by subscription. Click here or email for more information on how to become a subscriber.
