With the number of seniors over the age of 60 set to double between 2012 and 2050, we face the challenge of overcoming economic and social issues that come along with this.The rising life expectancy coupled with rising cost of living, in particular health care, will put an enormous financial and social strain on both seniors and societies if no proactive actions are taken.This is an issue that affects not only seniors but all of us who wish to remain healthy and independent as we age.

Whether you are a senior, caregiver, expert, policy maker or just want to learn more about how you can make implement active ageing in your own life, come participate in the Active Ageing Hackathon and use your skills to create great impact!
