In wealthier countries such as Australia, 50% of our current Year 11's who were born in 2000 will get to celebrate their 100th birthday. This has implications for everything from healthcare to urban design, education and economics. The Age of Longevity is not simply about solving problems related to aged care, but also about how we prepare our young people for the future.

At this Festival of Ambitious Ideas our speakers from a range of industries and sectors explored some of the challenges, opportunities and innovations associated with living longer.

Festival of Ambitious Ideas is proudly sponsored by the Canberra Airport.
