Who Said Older Adults Don't Like Technology?
Inspirational, Innovation, Entrepreneurship
The world’s population is aging
People all over the world are having less babies and living longer. By 2050, the number of people over 60 is expected to reach 2.1 billion- nearly a quarter of the world’s population. This massive increase in the percentage of older adults within the population means that there will be fewer younger adults to support them.
Contrary to common belief, most older adults hold a positive perception of technology. Many are eager to learn new tech skills- as long as they find them useful.
The talk covers the following topics:
What is the longevity economy and why should you care about it?
So what are the obstacles on the way to adoption of new technology by older people?
What do older people need?
What is Age-Tech?
And more - depending on the audience.
