Dear friends,

Following the tradition of 2013, 2014 and 2015, as usual 3 months before
October 1, there starts the organization of events and publications toward
the “Longevity Day” (based on the UN International Day of Older Persons -
October 1) in support of biomedical aging and longevity research.


This has been a worldwide international campaign successfully adopted by
many longevity activists groups. Last year, events, meetings, publications
and promotions were organized in the framework of this campaign in over 40
countries. Some promotions reached hundreds of thousands of viewers. This
campaign has also received factual endorsement and publicity from several
internationally and nationally recognized scientific and advocacy


Hopefully, this year, the campaign will be no less enriching, unifying and
impactful. Though this year, it was suggested, while keeping the "longevity
day" concept as would be desirable to particular groups and activists,
rather to emphasize and organize the longevity promotion events in October
in a new framework – as “The Longevity Month” – as usually the “longevity
day” events spread through the entire month of October. Various
“commemorative months” to support particular advocacy issues is a well
established and effective practice, and a dedicated “month” can give people
more flexibility and space to organize events and publications. This time
it would even be endeavored to gain some official state-level recognition
of this commemorative month campaign. Yet it would depend on the strength
of every individual event and publication of this campaign.


Several events are already included as a part of the "Longevity Day/Month"
celebrations. One of them is the conference of the International Society on
Aging and Disease (ISOAD) that will  take place in Stanford, on September
30 - October 2

If you would like to plan a longevity research promoting meeting or event
in your country, or produce a longevity advocacy publication toward
October, please let know – so the participants of this campaign can
encourage each other and reinforce each other’s efforts. Looking forward to
October full with advancement of longevity science!
