2012 EVENTS:

Thursday 24th May - London Breakfast Gathering on Age-related Issues

WINDOW2050 is hosting an AGEpositive gathering to present ideas and explore opportunities coming to light from a fresh appreciation of the needs, power and market opportunity of senior age groups and the benefits of intergenerational relationships for women and men from 18 to 80+. 


WINDOW2050 has developed the AGEpositive concept in a bid to help reverse opinions about maturing and growing older by seeing life at every age more positively.  Being productive, healthy and active continues throughout our lifetime and will affect everyone.  Where there's life, interest and willingness then there should rightly be opportunity too!


Join WINDOW2050 and selected speakers who are pushing age-related and intergenerational relationships to the top of the agenda to:


  • hear what national age-related initiatives are gaining ground
  • help you to identify new product/service opportunities for seniors in your markets
  • reveal the types of charitable and non-profit partnerships that could enhance your approach
  • help us garner support for older generations by encouraging Corporate Responsibility actions.


This event, hosted by Rosemary De Vos and WINDOW2050, follows on from the successful WINDOW2050 International Women’s Day Event at The Royal Society of Arts in London on 8th March this year where six high-profile women speakers provided their thoughts on intergenerational relationships and sustainability themes affecting women and men from 18 to 80+.


More WINDOW2050 events are planned in May and June and later in the year so keep an eye on our website and sign up to our newsletter here:  info@window2050.com.
