Keynotes & Topics

Day 1 (10 Nov 22):
First Keynote Address :
"Decision-making for and in old age"

Keynote Abstract:
This address will review recent research, from CEPAR and elsewhere, that discusses the issue of how cognitive ageing impacts decision-making, and how policy can assist. As populations age, governments are retreating from universal longevity, health and aged care LTC) insurance, leaving individuals to make life decisions with which they are unfamiliar, at mature age. Often, families become involved, which can lead to conflict of interest. Research on cognitive trends, choice behaviours, and individual priorities all play into determining how best to shape policies to maximally assist decision-making around these choices.

Day 2 (11 Nov 22):
Second Keynote Address:
"Navigating the Challenges of Ageing Societies: A European Perspective"

Keynote Abstract:

This keynote takes as its starting point the facts that global ageing is an irreversible phenomenon which presents significant challenges at all levels of society. The main purpose of the lecture is to show how these challenges can be navigated successfully. The evidence comes largely from Europe, the world's oldest region. The lecture summarises the key challenges - including income security and sustainability, workforce ageing, and maintaining health and well-being - then employs research evidence to demonstrate the steps necessary to ensure that all societies age well. A key point of reference is the major European research project Mobilising the Potential of Active Ageing in Europe (http://mopact.sites.shef.ac.uk) which developed a new policy framework for ageing. It is definitely not being suggested that European solutions can be transferred directly to other regions, but rather that the principles underlying the framework are universal. In a nutshell, all societies need to rethink their current approaches to old age and develop strategies to support active ageing across the life course.
