Who wants to work forever? Work, retirement and well-being in later life
The British population is ageing. Today, about 10 million people living in the UK are aged 65+. This is expected to increase by 50% by 2050. As people are living longer and fewer people are being born the government is seeking to encourage people to remain work until later in life. However not everyone can or wants to continue working until much later in life. In this event we will have speakers from a wide range of backgrounds who will each discuss the challenges and opportunities of extending working lives.
