The Atlantic’s inaugural Generations Forum will convene leading scholars, demographers, health professionals and urban planners for a half-day event focused on the top political, social, and economic issues and opportunities facing America as an unprecedented demographic shift takes hold.
In the coming years, 77 million aging baby boomers will create a need for new infrastructure and services in communities across the nation, particularly in the housing and transportation sectors. As lifespan continues to increase, we must look for both commonsense and innovative solutions in healthcare given the demands of a changing population. Meanwhile, increased longevity will leave many Americans concerned about a secure financial plan for the future.
Conversations will look at how breakthrough technology, urban transit trends, social mores, and new approaches to land development and architecture are creating more livable communities, and experts will assess the changing labor force and how to redesign retirement to work for families that may lack the financial security of the previous generation.
In a series of panel discussions and keynote interviews, The Atlantic’s Generations Forum will analyze how individuals, communities, and policymakers can seize opportunities to adapt to this new societal structure and embrace the demographic realities of America’s future.
