Coming of Age in Aging America
Fewer births, coupled with longer life expectancy equals a country that ages faster.
What will it mean for us all to live and age in a society where half the citizens are over the age of 50? Never in human history has this been our reality. And it’s not just America — we are an aging globe. It’s new and it’s not temporary. It’s a permanent historic transformation. Coming of Age in Aging America presents a public challenge that urges a national conversation about our new reality.
Thank you to our Film Panel…
