Future of Aging

What We Do

Population aging – the massive demographic shift – is changing lives and institutions across the world. Globally, the number of people age 60 and over is projected to leap from about 900 million to more than 2 billion by mid-century. The future of aging will be different for individuals, families, businesses, communities, and societies. Now is the time to plan, and act.

The Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging advances healthy longevity and financial security for all through high-impact policies, research, convenings, and multisector partnerships.
