Aging Futures

A session at WSIS Forum 2019, Geneva

Monday, April 8 2019, from 4:30pm to 6:15pm, Room M, ITU

Information and communication technologies (ICT) have extraordinary potential to help with the response to the demands of a major demographic shift, including meeting the challenges of a shrinking workforce and improving healthcare and caregiving for older persons. Yet key challenges exist that need to be addressed, including accessibility of these technologies and digital skills for older persons. This panel will explore how older persons are using ICTs to ensure positive change for themselves and others, manage age-related challenges, and overcome risks, barriers and stereotypes. It will include speakers from a variety of stakeholder groups.
