APPG Update Since May Launch
We’ve been moving quietly but quickly since our launch in May 2019.
We’ve grown our pool of experts to include more than 100 top-tier scientists, academics, policymakers, business leaders and specialists in health, care and the third sector. We’ve held five Advisory Boards on science, health, business and public attitudes in hot pursuit of the best bold ideas to meet the government’s goal of giving all - rich and poor - five more years of healthy life by 2035.
Now, our National Consultation on how to achieve five extra years of Healthy Life Expectancy (HLE+5) is well underway. Have your say on what needs doing but please make time to get your ideas to us by the 30th of September. As you know, we need to keep moving quickly towards our goal.
We’re on course to publish our National Strategy - a detailed, realistic action plan - early next year. For too long, the talk has been about the ‘problem’ of rapid population ageing. We see the longevity revolution as one of the most promising opportunities of the 21st century. But we need to make radical moves to ensure we all get a chance to enjoy its benefits.
The Big Middle
The APPG for Longevity is proud to support the podcast series curated by Susan Flory exploring the big issues of longer midlife, rethinking ageing in a world obsessed with youth. Stereotypes are smashed, mindsets are moved in interviews with the world’s biggest thinkers on all aspects of the longevity revolution.
