Recording: Modern Elderhood: Reframing the Way We Age, Mar 11, 2023

Aging is one of the very few universal human experiences that connects all of us. The second someone is born, they’ve already aged. By 2050, our global society will be more old than young. So, when you envision your own aging experience what do you picture: empowered, active, robust? Or, do you picture the 20th Century ageist messages that society continues to perpetuate around old age? Join this thought provoking dialogue to unpack and unravel traditional 20th century ideas around the concept of “aging” and “old age”, as well as the engrained perceptions and misconceptions that need to evolve. We’ll delve into what “old” was, and see the opportunity of what “empowered aging” can be. It’s not your grandparents' old age anymore…let’s make it yours.
