'The Age of No Retirement?' Manchester

27, 28, 29 April 2015

The People’s History Museum (Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester, M3 3ER)


Exploring the value within a society where people are living longer - 3 days, 4 themes, 24 co-design labs, 40 impact stories, 600 participants, 300 organisations.


We are living longer. And whether we welcome it or not, change is inevitable - in how we live our lives, and how we shape society around us.


Now is the time to explore together the opportunities that this change could mean for us all - in work, in education, in our communities, in the world as a whole.


And for you. Whether you're young or old, this is an issue about YOU. And how we think
and what we do today will affect us all, both now and in the future.


'The Age of No Retirement?' is a collaborative movement including employers, policy makers, innovators, designers, academics and citizens in creating a society without age barriers, where skills, capabilities, knowledge and wisdom are valued whatever your age - young or old.


Join us at the People's History Museum in April to prototype your future.
