TEDxLeicesterSalon : The 2nd Half of Our Lives
The average lifespan of babies born in 2017 will be approaching 100.
How will the extra years be spent? – flourishing, fulfilled and valued; or depressed and as a burden?
How can we prepare for this longer life, as individuals and as a society?
TEDx Salons combine informed talks, TED videos, and open discussion with speakers and audience.
We invite you to come, listen and watch, and add your voice.
