Since its foundation in 2012/13, ILC-BR is promoting dialogue about population ageing and its implications for public policies.

In addition to its annual International Longevity Forum, ILC-BR is organising an International Symposium to specifically discuss public policies and provide subsidies for the next government to be elected in the coming weeks. The Symposium will be taking place on October 19th and be organised in partnership with the Open University for the Third Age of the University of São Paulo. The speakers will provide an analysis of public policy of the last 10 years and together recommendations for policymaking in the future will be elaborated. The event is co-sponsored by TENA Brazil and MSD Pharmaceuticals.

About a month later, ILC-BR will be holding its 6th International Longevity Forum, which will take place on November 22nd and 23rd in Rio de Janeiro. Central theme to this year’s Forum is “Designing the future of ageing”, providing an opportunity to discuss technological developments and other achievements in science and to examine how these advancements will influence the future for individuals, communities and society. The aim is also to examine the interplay between these changes and population ageing in academia, media, business, government and the non-governmental sector. The Forum, a realization of Bradesco Seguros / UniverSeg, will unite around 30 Brazilian and foreign experts. MSD Pharmaceuticals is co-sponsoring this event.
