Green Templeton College Human Welfare Conference 2021
Online event about healthy ageing and the opportunities of longevity organized by University of Oxford. (FREE)
The United Nations recently declared 2021-2030 as the Decade of Healthy Ageing, a campaign that is intended to unite governments, international agencies, and other stakeholders to better the lives of the growing older adult population. This has proliferated a discourse on the promotion of healthy ageing.
The 13th annual Human Welfare Conference will explore healthy aging through multiple perspectives.
This conference will be broken into four themes.
The first theme will complicate the dominant discourse on ageing through the lens of longevity research. During the first presentation, the mechanisms of ageing will be examined and the proposition of ageing as a disease itself will be considered.
The second theme takes a broader focus, looking at the demographic changes and challenges of ageing worldwide.
The third theme continues in similar manner by discussing healthy-ageing from a cross-cultural perspective, investigating ageing-well, happiness and well-being in later life in other cultures.
Finally, there will be a panel discussion on what the challenges of healthy ageing worldwide are.
Speakers on this conference are:
• Hiroko Constantini
• Iza Kavedžija
• Lynne Cox
• Mary Daly
• Michael Dixon
• Muir Gray
• Sarah Harper
• Ramon Luengo-Fernandez
• Tamas Jozsa
