Announcement of the findings of "The Age of No Retirement?" event that was held last month at the Bargehouse.
On the 1st and 2nd of October 2014, at the OXO Bargehouse on Southbank London, more than 130 debaters and 350 participants from 200 organisations across every sector of the economy and society rolled up their sleeves and thrashed out 27 provocations in the biggest exploration ever of life, ageing and work in the UK.
Over the course of the two days more than 2000 ideas and insights were gathered on 8.5 kg of paper, and 42.5 hours of audio and more than 8 hours of video were recorded. The openness and freeness of ideas and insights in rethinking a different and more positive future was exciting to behold. The electric energy that so many participants commented on was down to all being so willing to think deeply and creatively when asked the question 'what if' to the provocations set.
We are excited to share with you the findings on Monday 17th November at 18:00-20:00.
