Episode Guest: Mark Freedman, Entrepreneur, Pioneer in the Aging Movement, Founder of Experience Corps, Civic Ventures, and Encore.Org., Speaker and Author
How to Live Forever is a deeply personal call to find fulfillment and happiness in our longer lives by connecting with the next generation and forging a legacy of love that lives beyond us. In writing How to Live Forever, Marc Freedman set out to answer three critical questions:
With so many living so much longer, what do the increasing years beyond 50 mean?
How can a society with more older people than younger ones thrive?
How do we find happiness when we know life is long and time is short?
These big questions invite us to explore how we live our daily lives. Freedman found insights by exploring purpose and generativity, digging into the drive for longevity and the perils of age segregation, and talking to social innovators across the globe, bringing the generations together for mutual benefit and his own mentors.
In this episode, you'll discover how to find fulfillment and happiness in our longer lives by connecting with the next generation and forging a legacy of love that lives beyond us.
