An Aging World

The world is aging fast. By 2030 there will be more people over 60 than under 10. Already there are more adults over 60 than children under five.

Even though the World Health Organization has called global aging a success story for humanity, western societies tends to equate age with decline. Yet the old are claiming another story: age can be a time of renewal with benefits for people of all ages.

What is Aging Horizons Bulletin?

Founded in 2005, Aging Horizons Bulletin (AHB) is an educational publication for the general reader. AHB reports on current research, and it highlights persons, best practices and items of interest to inform and inspire readers.

The 20th century saw enormous change in human development and aging, but no comparable shift took place in our understanding of the roles of older adults. AHB sheds light on the aging process from a human development perspective. Leading researchers generously share their time and expertise.
