The life course for many people will be quite different with an ageing population across the globe. This significant demographic change will require new models of ageing according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

For everyone to benefit from workplaces, citizens and communities strategists will need to acknowledge and respond to the increase in the percentage of older people. Strategist’s projections whether in government, industry or not for profits sectors will need to address the long held stereotypes about older people’s  active participation.    Please visit the WHO slide show for some of the facts on this change.
