Engage Ideas Forum
Ideas, concepts, new perspectives drive everything we do here in Age & Opportunity. It is our experience that, as we age, we can engage with new ideas with the kind of rigorous enthusiasm that is both refreshing and satisfying. Living a longer life gives us perspective; staying involved with life gives us a passion. Our Engage events bring together speakers with new ideas and perspectives to share with older audiences.
