2019 Conference

The Foundation’s first annual conference takes place at the Boston Seaport Hotel on October 25, 2019. Called Aging2.0 Boston Revolutionize, it will explore ways to revolutionize aging by fueling innovations that make aging easier. Boston is host to an active chapter among more than 100 operated worldwide by San Francisco-based Aging2.0. The Foundation, along with Aging2.0’s Leadership and Boston Chapter Committee, are assembling an internationally-positioned program with 300+ expected attendees. The conference will feature leaders from the age friendly movement in addition to policy experts and private sector thought-leaders. Among the program’s objectives is highlighting the Commonwealth’s successes in becoming the “Silicon Valley for innovation in aging”, led by the tremendous efforts of, and recommendations by, Governor Charlie Baker’s Council to Address Aging.
