This week on the Functional Forum podcast, we’re thrilled to welcome back Marc Winn. Marc is a resident of the nation-state of Guernsey and the co-founder of the Dandelion Project whose mission is to make Guernsey the best place to live by 2020.
On this podcast we will be announcing our most expansive and exciting adventure to date, called Journey to 100. It will be held on June 30th and available for live streaming through the Functional Forum. You might remember Functional Forum co-founder James Maskell presented his TEDx talk in 2015 from Guernsey called Community, Not Medicine, Creates Health. He’s heading back to Guernsey to host the event, along with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, the BBC’s “Doctor in the House”. Journey to 100 will host 20 leading global healthcare, lifestyle and longevity experts, who will share their perspectives and help us all understand how we can live healthier, happier lives, from zero to 100 years old and beyond. Expect over 20 international speakers from all over the world including some past Functional Forum presenters like Dr. Janet Settle, Dr. Michael Ash, Tom Blue and Dr. Sachin Patel. Beyond progressive medicine models, there will also be talks on fascinating topics indirectly related to healthcare like sustainable farming, universal basic income and community support structures.
We believe this project has the potential to show the world how factors such as community, purpose in life, preventative healthcare and a proactive approach to well-being could make Guernsey the first country to have an average life expectancy of 100, and to kickstart a new era in health and longevity.
