Aging 2.0

Founded in 2012 by Stephen Johnston and Katy Fike, Aging2.0 supports innovators taking on the biggest challenges and opportunities in aging. Aging2.0 is international, interdisciplinary and intergenerational - focused on changing the conversation from 1.0 (focused on local, clinical, siloed approaches) to 2.0 (collaborative, lifestyle oriented, opportunity driven) - hence the name: Aging2.0.
Over the past 4 years, Aging2.0 has hosted more than 300 events around the world and relies on 50+ volunteer Chapters to build and connect our 15,000 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.
