What is The Longevity Forum?
The Longevity Forum is a not-for-profit initiative committed to achieving longer, healthier and more fulfilled lives for as many people as possible. The Forum’s founding belief is that the best way to tackle an ageing society is to focus on longevity and that this requires a combination of scientific progress, economic investment and behavioral changes.
The Longevity Forum was created to provide a platform for public and private dialogue and collaboration among the stakeholders that play a critical role in the government, the corporate world and society. Such a platform can play an instrumental role in raising awareness of the changes underway, test ideas and create solutions.
Their inaugural event took place in November 2018 in London and brought together a diverse audience with different perspectives around the topic of human longevity. The Forum featured a range of thought leaders in this space, including the Director of the Stanford Center on Longevity; CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and the CEO of Encore.org. They also hosted panel discussions covering progress in curing the disease of aging, explored challenges in healthcare, education and work policies, all discussed through an inter-generational lens.
The Longevity Forum – Oman
Following the success of the inaugural forum, and the successes of the longevity week, which took place November 2019, as well as the importance of the global longevity agenda, The Longevity Forum and IDO Investments have decided to expand the forum and host its first international forum in Oman.
Bringing together local, regional and international experts to provide an overview on the breakthroughs and opportunities in Longevity and contextualize them to the Middle East region, the Longevity Forum – Oman is a one-day event that was scheduled for February 2020. Given the mourning period for his late Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Longevity Forum – Oman has been postponed until February 2021.
