What do Yo Yo Ma and Oprah have in common?

Take a look at this two-minute video, and you’ll see. Thirteen well-known people, past and present, talk about longer lives, purpose and the potential people over 50 have to change the world.

Talk about potential — in these challenging and divisive times, people over 50 are the one resource that’s abundant, local, powerful, sustainable, renewable, effective and hidden in plain sight.

For nearly 20 years, Encore.org has been pulling back the curtain and tapping the talent of people 50+ as a force for good.

Just a year ago, Encore launched the Generation to Generation (Gen2Gen) campaign to show that the goal of a longer life isn’t trying to be young; it’s to be there for those who actually are.

If you believe that every child deserves the right to thrive and that every person over 50 has something to give, join the Gen2Gen community on Facebook.
