Dementia Forum X
Dementia Forum X paves the way for high-level dialogue on the challenges that age-related demographic changes and dementia pose to societies, individuals and healthcare systems alike to forge a more effective global response in meeting them. Under the patronage of HM Queen Silvia of Sweden, the meeting in Stockholm gathers key stakeholders from different fields. Dementia Forum X is a biennial event with special Dementia Forum X Working Meetings organized during the years between the main meetings. The first Dementia Forum X was held in 2015 and the second one was held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm in 2017. In 2018, the meeting transformed into a truly global project, when the international version of Dementia Forum X took place in Tokyo, Japan on April 24th. The third and latest Dementia Forum X was held in 2019 at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
The goal is to facilitate high-level dialogue on the challenges that age-related demographic changes and dementia pose to societies, individuals and healthcare systems alike to forge a more effective global response in meeting them.
Participants for Dementia Forum X are selected from five key stakeholder groups (finance, business, society, care, and research). By teaming up with leading experts from different parts of the global society, we have the capacity to create a joint understanding of the global effects of dementia. Our conviction is that by connecting and engaging expertise from different parts of the global community, Dementia Forum X can enable impactful and measurable change.
