The action we take today as individuals, businesses and public policy bodies will determine the kind of world the next generation will inherit. That's why we held our first Better Futures event, bringing together over 27 speakers from a wide range of relevant disciplines to discuss how the actions we take today could affect ouf futures. We welcomed Futurist - Ray Hammond, Author - Calum Chace and Debate Mate as well as speakers from Xoomworks, Standard Life, SENS Research Foundation, Centre for Ageing Better, Institute for Cancer Research, Ageing without Children, Society of Later Life Advisers, DataSine, Aberdeen Asset Management, International Longevity Centre, ClubVita, Royal Society of Arts and many more.
We debated the impact artificial intelligence could have on health and longevity, the workforce and both state and individual finances. We examined the implications of our actions today on everything from economic distribution, to healthcare provision through to savings and protection.
At Better Futures 2019 we'll revisit some of these challenges and take a look at the other issues that will shape all our futures.
We asked some children what they think the world will be like when they grow up. Our experts have some surprising insights into how life might change in the years to come.
