This year we have been celebrating our 30th anniversary.
A message from our founding members ILC-USA, ILC- Japan, ILC-UK and ILC-France
Back in 1990 our aim was to reframe the way media and public discourse addressed older people and ageing, to promote the positive aspects of ageing and longevity and support societies across the world to adapt to ageing populations.
Our dream was to build an ILC Global Alliance which promoted the positive contribution older people make in society and the benefits of people living longer, healthier lives.
30 years on, we have grown to 16 member organisations across the world, each with their own priorities based on the needs in their particular country, but all sharing a positive view of longevity and doing research and promoting policy positions which strengthen attitudes and practice in each of their countries.
There is still much work to be done to end age discrimination and to promote the opportunities of longevity, but we are on the right track. Our hope for the future is that the ILC Global Alliance continues this important work and grows over the years to maximise the spread of the positive attitudes they share to the benefit of people of all ages across the world.

A new project, titled: “PERMANENTO – everyday functional exercise for older adults” is designed to help older adults to maintain the fundamental components of functional fitness. The main goal is to contribute to a broader perception of physical activity, especially its effects on the ageing processes and quality of life.
