People are living and working longer—changing the world
No matter your age, read along and discover how multiple generations have weathered changes, overcome obstacles, and seized opportunities as they forge their futures. Rebecca W. Rimel, President and CEO, The Pew Charitable Trusts
Welcome to the latest issue of Trend, from The Pew Charitable Trusts. Trend offers perspectives from eminent voices, in a range of disciplines, who are seeking to inform and improve our world.
In this edition, we explore the natural outcome of modern advances in science and medicine: People are living longer, bringing us to a new point in human history. In the United States, that means there are now six distinct generations existing side-by-side, each formed by different times and events. This complex interaction offers opportunities and challenges, which our essayists tackle here.
