Our aging world is often painted as an inevitable economic cost. And the reality is, our economy faces major challenges if we fail to deliver the potential economic return from longer lives. Economic growth will be hit hard if we don’t find a way to better understand spending by older people. And a failure to better engage older workers and improve productivity will lead to our economy struggling for the skills it needs. The International Longevity Centre-UK (ILC-UK) believes we need fresh thinking if we are to maximize the longevity dividend.
Through Future of Ageing 2019, ILC-UK will seek to reshape the debate about how business, the volunteer sector, and government can work together to deliver the economic potential of an aging world.
The conference will explore the following questions:
- How can the longevity dividend be maximized?
- Which industries and companies understand the opportunity of aging and have got to grips with the problems?
- What is the role for national and local government?
