Our society is rapidly aging, yet sharply segregated by age. In his new book, How to Live Forever, Marc Freedman ’84 says that rebuilding connections between the young and old can enrich all of our lives—and provide an essential key to happiness. Join us for a conversation about making the most of longer lives and the multigenerational society that is already upon us. Bring your questions and your stories of intergenerational exchange.
The conversation will be moderated by Cindy Cornell, Working Professionals Career Coach at the Yale School of Management.
