Conversations with GIA: Purposeful Aging: A Model for a New Life Course
Purposeful aging holds great possibilities for people of all ages. Older adults today are healthier and more vibrant than generations past and represent a formidable human capital asset. They offer not just the wisdom of age, but experience and skills that enrich families, as well as work, educational and social settings. Millions of them are seeking new pathways to purpose. As mentors, they enhance intergenerational understanding. Through encore careers and volunteerism, they contribute to society’s well-being, and their own as well. This webinar discussed how purposeful aging is correlated with longer life, better health, emotional resilience, and the advancement of our children; and some ways in which we all can play a role in the solution. Presenters: Paul H. Irving, Chairman, Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging; Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Davis School of Gerontology, University of Southern California. Trent Stamp, CEO, The Eisner Foundation. Moderator: John Feather, PhD, Chief Executive Officer, Grantmakers In Aging. Co-Sponsored by: The Eisner Foundation and The John A. Hartford Foundation.
