The following is a guest post by Bradley Schurman, Senior Advisor for AARP International:

We’ve teamed up with the United Nations [1] on a series of talks around reducing poverty and challenges in aging. Today and tomorrow, we’ll be livestreaming and invite you to watch and join the conversation. Details are available here [2].

Madame Michelle Bachelet [3], former President of Chile and current Under Secretary General and Executive Director of UN Women will deliver the keynote address at the briefing.

What do you think we can learn from other nations on combatting poverty? Or what innovative solutions do we have that we can share with the world?
