Our global work
In a world where 1.4 billion people will be 60+ by 2030 and over 60’s will exceed 15-24 year olds, the Encore Network looks to expand the encore movement in collaboration with organizations and individuals around the world who view longer lives as an opportunity for our countries. At the United Nations in 2017, Encore.org CEO and founder, Marc Freedman, set a challenge to spur “a revolution of social and cultural innovation to engage millions of people of 50+ in solving social problems around the world”.
To further that aim, the Network:
- Connects leaders
- Shares messages, writing, research and programs
- Spreads news of other successful programs to raise their visibility and foster learning
Engage with the Encore Network
- Read our Spotlights and learn about innovative encore programs
- Use our Encore Network resources developed for emerging encore leaders around the world
- Join the Encore Network
