What is “sustainable aging”?
Most simply, sustainable aging means making social and economic decisions that enable our age-related institutions to endure in the long-term. It is re-approaching what it means to age in the 21st century as lives extend and birth rates plummet. It means re-thinking how we are to live throughout all stages of our life so that we can remain healthy, active, productive members of society in our 60s, 70s, and 80s. And that we calibrate public policy on the assumption this is to be enabled and assumed. Or, as well put by the World Economic Forum e-book, Global Population Aging: Peril or Promise? let’s make it on the promise sides for as many of us as possible.
