David Sinclair is Chief Executive of the UK’s International Longevity Centre. He has worked in policy, advocacy and research on ageing and demographic change for over 20 years. In this wide-ranging conversation, we explore different countries’ approach to seismic demographic shifts, the pandemic’s mass retirement and how companies are responding, shifting attitudes to dying with dignity legislation, inclusive marketing towards older consumers, and gender differences in life, work and longevity. He shares a uniquely global overview of ageing society issues.
A Global Perspective
The overview is nourished by the ILC’s Global Alliance and its 16 representatives from countries and contexts around the globe. ‘Longevity’ is a uniquely broad tent, and David Sinclair opens a view of its vast and potentially huge opportunities, with an impassioned invitation to the world – and to each of us - to wake up to ageing’s reality and multiple impacts.
He also provides us with a range of key reports (see below) and a Save the Date for the ILC’s Future of Ageing Conference coming soon, Nov 24th.
