According to the World Health Organization, the class of people over 60 years of age is growing faster than any other age group in nearly every country of the world. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that the number of Americans aged 65 and older will double to 88.5 million by 2050.
A large part of the aging population is the baby boomer generation, those of us who were born post-World War II, between 1946 and 1964. Today in 2016, we find ourselves between the ages of 51 and 70.
Our generation is quite extraordinary on multiple dimensions. We grew up in an era of profound social, political and economic change. Boomers are widely known for rejecting conventional values and challenging societal norms.
Aging Organic (AO) is a forum designed to continue our challenge of prevailing values and views about growing old. Our mission is to share ideas, explore issues and encourage dialogue about the way people age in the 21st century.
Growing old is a beautiful thing.
