The Global Coalition on Aging (GCOA) is pleased to announce that the 2020 Silver Economy Forum will kick off on July 29, followed by a series of virtual events in September. The special preview event, Silver Economy Sustainability in China and Globally: Lessons from COVID-19, will take place on July 29, at 8:00 AM EDT / 2:00 PM CEST / 8:00 PM CST.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new urgency to our efforts to pursue healthy aging and grow the silver economy, as older populations have been most at risk and ageism has been exacerbated across society. This year’s virtual event will build on our momentum from the first-ever Silver Economy Forum held in Helsinki in 2019, engaging government, business, global institution, NGO, and academic leaders to drive growth in the Silver Economy.
On July 29, our panel of experts will preview our core themes for September’s sessions. Join us to learn more and offer your input into our 2020 Silver Economy Forum agenda.
