Ageing Well: How can we turn the ‘problem’ of ageing into the most promising opportunity of the 21st century?

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Longevity was set up in March 2019 and states it’s aim as ‘to address the scientific, technological and socio-economic issues relating to our ageing demographic and promote living younger, healthier and longer lives.’ This webinar explores current projects that already embody this way of thinking. We will look at what is needed to bring this change about on a large scale and what this signals about the way we think about ageing in the future. Speakers:
  • Eric Kihlstrom – UK Ambassador Aging2.0
  • Dr Natasha Slutskaya – Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management in the Business School, University of Sussex
  • Graham Peters – Chair of Team East Sussex (TES)
  • Colum Lowe – Director, Design Age Institute at Royal College of Art London

This project is funded by the University of Sussex and the Economic and Social Research Council to help translate academic knowledge into action. The activity is facilitated by always possible, a unique consultancy looking at 21st century problem-solving through connected conversation.

The Ageing Well project brings together a host of activities, research and content and as part of this we have set up a community content hub via a peer networking platform called The Possibility Club.

Sign up to the Ageing Well: Changing the Conversation ‘circle’ to join a community of people and organisations interested in discussing, debating and disrupting how we ‘age well’. It’s a place to share ideas, build collaboration and move towards changing the conversation around how we age.

These free online discussions give you permission to disrupt the way we think about – and do – ageing well.

Bringing together cutting-edge research, business innovation, grassroots practice in the community and individual lived experience – we’re pooling our knowledge to see what the future might look like.

If you are open to sharing ideas and building collaborations about living old and living well, digital lives, health, wellbeing and generational learning – then we’d love you to join a new community of thought.
