THEME 1: DISRUPTIVE DEMOGRAPHICS

THEME 2: INTEGRATED, SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

The saying “it takes a village” is doubly true for ageing. At a time when national politics are failing, cities and communities are agents of change. They are also the building blocks for a genuine single European ‘longevity market’, comprised of joined up connected, vibrant local markets.

Theme 3: Making Missions Happen 

A single market provides the playing field, yet delivering on missions will require new levels of collaboration that we’ve not yet seen. This will require clarity on missions, mapping the data, modeling best practices and building ‘minimum viable ecosystems’ to make change happen.
