ILC-BR continued to contribute content and technical orientation to an online portal called “Live Longevity” which was launched in October 2017 with the support of Bradesco Seguros.
The portal aims at raising awareness on ageing and related topics among younger generations. A monthly column of Alexandre Kalache explains the determinants of active ageing, with a specific focus on the life course.
On 16 and 17 October 2023, the ILC Global Alliance held a meeting in Tokyo, Japan, co-chaired by Julie Byles and Margaret Gilles. The attendees included representatives from ILCs in Australia, Canada, Singapore, South Africa, the UK, and the USA as well as the Secretariat.
