Part of The Atlantic’s “Conversation on Generations” series, underwritten by AARP, this event will convene senior executives, public officials, tech innovators, developers, and other thought leaders to discuss innovations in design that are happening in response to the aging of America.
From now until 2029, a baby boomer will reach the age of 65 every eight seconds. The resulting demographic shift is having an enormous impact on the field of design – from products to services to infrastructure. Through our forum, we will foster a dialogue to identify creative and cutting edge solutions across public and private sectors that will help people live their best lives long into their later years.
Moderated by Megan Garber, Technology Writer for The Atlantic, an early sample of speakers includes Eric Baczuk, Senior Interaction Designer of Frog Design, Linda Gibbs, New York City Deputy Mayor of Health and Human Services, and Thomas Kamber, Executive Director of Older Adults Technology Services; additional speakers to be released.
