Aging Well in a Connected World

Executive Summary

The world's population is aging significantly. Every second, two more people somewhere in the world turn 60; by 2029, those over 60 years of age will represent nearly one-third of Europe's population, with Japan and North America close behind. The baby-boom generation is getting old. The aging population is cause for celebration, providing the opportunity for society to benefit from the economic engagement and broad experience of a growing number of older people. Aging populations also present major social and economic challenges, however, including the need to stretch already-scarce health and social care resources, while at the same time responding to demands for greater participation by older people leading increasingly rich and fulfilling lives.
