From the Longevity Explorer website:
“Longevity Explorers are a unique sharing, evaluation, and ideation community— made up of older adults (in their 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s), and their friends, families, and caregivers who meet monthly. We believe a variety of socio-economic and demographic factors will change greatly the experience of aging for us and for those who come after us. We know some of the current paradigms of growing older need to change. And we want to influence these changes.
We see ourselves as “explorers” of the future of aging. We want to explore new approaches to living as we grow older, and new products and services. We see the community of Longevity Explorers as a place to explore new ideas and a place where innovative people come to learn how we think about growing older, and to get help developing new and better products and services for future generations.
This community leverages the insights, and years of accumulated wisdom, of older adults themselves to accelerate the emergence of novel solutions to some of the challenges of aging. We are especially interested in technology-enabled products that can push off the time at which functional decline gets in the way of living life to the full.”
