Organizing the Longevity Month Campaign for October 2019

As every year since 2013, we organize the Longevity Month campaign in October. This traditional campaign has combined the activities of many organizations and individual activists working to promote research, development and application for healthy longevity around the world. During the years, hundreds of events, publications and other promotional actions were organized in dozens of countries in the framework of this campaign. These activities help build up the longevity activism into a massive global grassroots movement with a sizable impact on public health and research policy.

Here are some examples of the past activities.

This year too, we invite you to organize longevity-related events, publications and promotions during the month of October, advocating to enhance research, development and education for the promotion of healthy longevity and prevention of aging-related diseases.

If you organize or participate in an event, publication or promotion in your country, please contact us, so we could present and combine the events together as a united global campaign. Thank you for your support and involvement!

In the framework of this campaign, events and promotions have been organized in over 20 countries! Add yours! (And plan for the next year!)

For organizing the events in you are area, you are welcome to use the longevity activists map that was created to faciliate finding and commnunicating of local longevity activists, especially for the longevity month campaign.
