Intersection of aging and co-creation
Last month I gave a talk on co-creation and the future of aging at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. You can view the entire talk below. Hope you find it interesting.
It's about the intersection of several megatrends:
1. The rapid growth in the elderly in most countries over the coming decades;
2. The sad fact that society is ignoring a large talented pool of individuals who are 65 and older and have lots to contribute but who are all too often excluded from the workforce;
3. The rise of the crowd as a way to tackle societal challenges; and
4. The striking lack of high tech solutions to the many challenges of aging.

The vast majority of people over 50 have the capacity to 'pile on' the Qualys to improve their quality of their life in later decades. This outcome is a function of active lifestyle habits in adult years which have proven benefits for brain health, cardio and endocrine wellness. I look forward to sharing data from a sample of 700 residents of Silicon Valley over 50 who rated various 'active lifestyle' factors. I will additionally suggest specific tactics to help mature adults maximize the number of years that can be characterized as 'active and vital' vs. fragile.
