ILC Global Alliance
The International Longevity Centre (ILC) Global Alliance is an international consortium of member organizations. The mission of the ILC Global Alliance is to help societies to address longevity and population ageing in positive and productive ways, typically using a life course approach, highlighting older people’s productivity and contributions to family and society as a whole. The alliance member organisations carry out the mission through developing ideas, undertaking research and creating forums for debate and action, in which older people are key stakeholders.
The ILC Global Alliance currently includes centres in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom and United States. These centres work both autonomously and collaboratively to study how greater life expectancy and increased proportions of older people impact on nations around the world. The priorities of the centres are:
• To identify productive aging as an important topic, not just paid employment, but also the continuing talent and contributions of older people.
• To promote educational, research and policy initiatives which will advance an active, healthy life throughout the life course.
