Healthy Ageing in an Era of Climate Change

When asked about the biggest challenge facing us globally, Mick Smyer, Founder and CEO of the American non-profit organisation, Growing Greener, didn’t miss a beat:  “Ageing in an era of climate change,” he answered. “It resonates both at the individual and the societal levels.”

This seemed like the perfect way to sum up the panel discussion I attended at The 2021 Longevity Week, an annual conference addressing the challenges of ageing societies. Hosted by Encore Fellows UK, the panel looked at the role of social entrepreneurship in supporting the nexus between longevity, ageing and the environment.
