Ageing Societies

November 29, 2016 - November 30, 2016

The statistics on Ageing Societies are astounding. According to WHO forecasts, the share of the global population aged over 60 will nearly double by 2050, from 12% to 22%. People are living longer than ever before and birth rates are declining, leading to a radically altered age structure across all countries.

Though nations are experiencing the impacts of an ageing society in different ways and at varied paces, the trend is a universal one. Join 150+ global leaders and experts to discuss the opportunities of an ageing world. Learn more>>

Shifting global demographics will have profound impacts on everything from health care to pensions and the economy, and in order to ensure that these changes are primarily a boon and not a burden action is needed now.

That is why The Economist Events is bringing global leaders from business, finance and health care together with policymakers this autumn to explore the opportunities of an ageing world.

Together they will discuss how best to adapt financial products and realign business and public policies in ways that will drive economic growth and mitigate problems that ageing societies could otherwise bring.
