The Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center facilitates knowledge transfer regarding key issues associated with population aging through outreach, programs, seminars, and trainings.

To provide diverse older populations with the institutional platforms needed to age well requires that research findings be translated into effective, sustainable practices and policies.

Today, the ILC Global Alliance is a consortium of 17 ILCs spanning six continents that conduct international, interdisciplinary work that focuses on the potential of societies of longer lives.

Our goal is to communicate innovative ways to impact policy and raise visibility for practices that are effective at improving the work, culture, and health in a time of unprecedented longevity.
