The world is rapidly growing older. According to the United Nations, more than one-fifth of the world’s population will be over 60 years of age by 2050, with older adults overtaking the world’s population of children five years earlier.
The changing demographic marks a new chapter in the history of humanity. As pioneers in a “new land”, we look for help to navigate the territory of the middle and late years.
Aging Horizons Bulletin (AHB) is a bimonthly educational publication for the general reader. We report on the current research. And we highlight persons, best practices and items of interest we hope will inform and inspire our readers.
The tendency in Western society is to equate being old with decline and sickness. Yet the old are claiming another story: age can be a time of renewal with benefits for people of all ages.
AHB covers the aging process from a holistic perspective with assistance from leading researchers, who generously share their time and expertise. Please send items of interest to info @ aginghorizons.com, or you can use our contact page.
Thank you again for your interest in issues of human development and aging. We hope you enjoy AHB.
