Dear friends,

There has been emerging a tradition by longevity researchers and activists around the world to organize events dedicated to promotion of longevity research on or around October 1 – the UN International Day of Older Persons. 
This day is sometimes referred to in some parts of the longevity activists community as the “International Longevity Day”.

In 2013, events during or around that day – ranging from small meetings of friends to seminars and rather large conferences, alongside special publications, distributions of outreach materials (petitions and flyers) and media appearances – were held in over 30 countries, and in 2014 in over 20 countries.


Let us maintain and strengthen this tradition! It is now 3 months before October 1, a good time to plan a mutually reinforcing network of events worldwide. If you plan to organize an event for that day, please let know. Together we can create an activism wave of strong impact.


In 2013, 2014, live meetings and on-line publications and promotions were done by longevity activists across the Middle East. Hopefully, this year, more live events and on-line publications and promotions will be done to advance Longevity Science in the area!


As promotional materials, one may use the position paper on the “Critical need to promote research of aging and aging-related diseases to improve health and longevity of the elderly population”, briefly describing the rationales, technologies and policies needed to promote this research. It is available in Hebrew http://www.longevity...esearch-hebrew/ in Arabic http://www.longevity...esearch-arabic/ also here, from Egypt Plus http://www.egyptplus.../t352-topic#353  and in English http://www.longevity...ound-the-world/  or the excellent materials on longevity science in Persian from Iran Longevity Alliance http://www.iranlongevity.com/ or a presentation briefly listing some topics in longevity science promotion http://www.longevity...rticles/ab7.php or any other materials of your choice.


Please support this initiative! If you would like to get involved, please let know! Thank you!
