Character Development

Congratulations to the 2007 Purpose Prize winners. Chosen from more than 1,100 nominations from 48 states, these five social entrepreneurs, all over the age of 60, have used their life experience to improve their communities and to innovate. It's time to redefine how we think of retirement, believes Civic Ventures President Marc Freedman, who helped initiate the prizes. "It's the intersection of the longevity revolution and the demographic revolution and either one of those alone would be a significant social development," he says, "but the combination brings things to a magnitude that we're only beginning to grasp." —Heather Wax
