2020 Silver Economy Forum – China will be a virtual global event beginning in early September. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new urgency to our efforts to pursue healthy aging and grow the silver economy, as older populations have been most at risk and ageism has been exacerbated across society. This year’s event will build on our momentum from the first-ever Silver Economy Forum held in Helsinki in 2019, engaging government, business, global institution, NGO, and academic leaders to drive growth in the Silver Economy. Join us as we explore the opportunities for action and collaboration.
