Exploring the Impact of Aging Global Population on One Planet Living
The Baby Boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, are the largest expansion in population ever known and they will all be 65 years or older by 2030. This aging boom is being called the "Silver Tsunami" because of the rapid impact these large numbers of aging adults will have on global social, financial, political, health and environment institutions. The amount of resources, money and human capital needed to meet these needs will greatly affect humanities ability to balance itself on the confines of living on one planet. In our time together we will begin to propose the challenge as a source of inquiry into how we will adapt to include the impact of this demographic on our ability to create a sustainable future.
