Working Longer in an Ageing Society
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (GMT)
According to latest ONS figures, the average age at which people retire is rising. In addition, government is keen to promote an extension of working lives due to the fiscal pressures of population ageing. However, working into later life is more complex than simply delaying the official retirement age; influential factors will also cause particular changes as society as whole grows older.
‘Working Longer in an Ageing Society’ is a panel discussion focussing on the issues of extending working lives. Organised and chaired by the International Longevity Centre (ILC-UK), this event will feature perspectives from UCL academics and representatives from Carers UK to explore some of the salient issues related to working to later ages, with particular awareness of the role that health and wellbeing play.
On the panel will be
Brian Beach, ILC-UK
Prof Diana Kuh, UCL
Ms Jenny Head, UCL
Ms Katherine Wilson, Carers UK
