What might the future of ageing look like? Will we live longer, healthier and wealthier lives, or will there be too little for too many?
At the International Longevity Centre – UK’s Second Annual Future of Ageing Conference – business leaders; charity sector experts; public sector decision makers; local authority staff; academics and senior journalists will convene in London to address the challenges posed by rapidly ageing societies.
Last year’s conference, described by one delegate as ‘one of the best conferences I have ever attended’, assembled experts from the fields of health, housing, finance and business to identify the challenges and opportunities posed by an ageing society.
