Shaping the Global Agenda on Ageing: Meeting the Needs of Cognitive Decline

The World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Ageing focused the majority of its activities on: the intersection of cognition, longevity, technology and financial services. To tackle cognitive decline and its impact on finances, the traditional silos of banking, gerontology, technology, medicine and finance must be discarded. Through the collective efforts of the council, additional activities were also delivered during this mandate aiming to disseminate a positive narrative on the opportunities of ageing societies. These issues demand that unlikely stakeholders unite to address the methods through which they can apply technological advances, best practices and more thoughtful communication to help detect and manage cognitive decline and prevent fraud and malicious loss of personal property.
