CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Imagine 2030… what will Hawaii look like as we are getting older as a society? There will be 369,000 adults aged 65 and over—150% of its current size—whom will constitute 23% of the total population (currently 17%). The number of people aged 85 and over will double to 59,000. Most adults prefer to stay in their home of choice as they age. What will a community supportive of purposeful aging in place look like? How do we get there?

This year’s Conference, Imagine 2030…Mobilizing our Communities Across Generations, centers around three areas of focus: Improving Health, such as healthy living, disease prevention, healthcare delivery systems, caregiving, and health technology; Strengthening Economies, such as economic security, work and leisure activities, business, innovation, education and training; and Enabling Community, such as family support, intergenerational exchange, volunteerism, community well‐being, policy and advocacy, and a sustainable environment.

The 2-day symposium will feature global, national and local speakers and presenters, plenary sessions, concurrent sessions of speaker, panel and workshop presentations, a new Roundtable Session and concluding with an “Imagine 2030” Brainstorming Session.
