Why ageing, why now?
For much of the past 200 years, mankind has steadily increased average life expectancy. Increasing longevity presents subtle but powerful drivers for change; if we are to make the most of this success and minimise its pitfalls.
Managing the way we age, how we treat those damaged by the ageing process, and how we address the very real inequalities in the experience of ageing that exist in our society, are essential to achieve sustained resilience and growth in a world where the average age is substantially higher than our current arrangements are designed for.
National, regional and local government, and health service providers are urgently seeking new approaches to reduce costs and scale up care services in the face of workforce challenges. Older consumers are seeking products and services which address and are compatible with their needs. Businesses are beginning to see the potential new markets this brings, but few yet understand the complex, interrelated and often counter intuitive issues. Nevertheless, if we are to create sustainable, vital and economically viable environments, they must be places in which all of us can live, work and thrive, regardless of age. Creating the solutions that enable this is delivering new market opportunities for economic regions and companies willing and ready to evolve.
