Aging2.0: Improving Experiences for Older People Through Technology and Innovation @ Online
Aug 8 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Age-friendly environments is a global emerging trend attracting the interest of all levels of governments, industry, NGOs and academia. Knowledge translation is just as important as knowledge creation, and for this reason the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) are hosting a series of webinars. “Aging2.0: Improving experiences for older people through technology and innovation” is the title of the fourth webinar lead by Mr. Stephen Johnston, Co-founder and CEO of Aging2.0. This webinar will address the following questions: What does an ‘Aging2.0’ world look like for older people? How does Aging2.0 help creators translate their ideas into impacts? What are some examples of start-ups that have made an impact the functional ability of older people? How can technological innovation influence the continued growth of age-friendly environments? This webinar is hosted by the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) & World Health Organization.
