Encore Summit 2018

In November, 250 leaders from the US and several other countries gathered in Los Angeles to explore a set of key questions about making the most of longer lives.

  • How will we use this time to create a new vision of the future that works for all generations?
  • What opportunities can we seize together, and what barriers are in our way?
  • How can we accelerate change to transform longer lives into a force for good?

Participants also helped launch Marc Freedman’s newest book, How to Live Forever, and attended the Gen2Gen Encore Prize finals.

The resources on this page provide a glimpse into the ideas and energy generated at the event.
