Given the twin trends of urban living and shifting demography, the pursuit of healthy, productive, and purposeful aging must become a priority for civic leaders. Cities are poised to lead, serving as labs for ideas and incubation in response to the new realities. Bold leadership, policymaking, and action will not just benefit the old but will enhance livability for all. This panel applies futurist concepts and an intersectional lens to imagine environments that harness the longevity dividend.
