Over the past 6 years, Aging2.0 has hosted more than 550 events around the world and relies on 65+ volunteer Chapters to build and connect our estimated 40,000 person community in 20+ countries. Aging2.0 has 150 corporate Alliance members and works with ‘CEOs’ – Chief Elder Officers, who help us design with, not for, older people.
