Hosted around the world, Meetup's Baby Boomer group gatherings provide the perfect place for people to connect around the world. Entering a new phase of life always brings new challenges and these meetups provide the perfect place for the aging population to discuss issues like easing into retirement, coping with loss, staying active, dating and healthcare in old age.

In total, these events are hosted across nine of the world's countries, in over 250 cities. Gatherings range from singles supper clubs to walking excursions, movies and group yoga sessions on the beach. There are even boomer flash mob groups that record their own YouTube videos in the hopes that they will go viral. With nearly 100,000 members participating across the world, this proves that getting old doesn't have to mean that the fun spirit of youth is lost.
