The New Long Life - A practical guide to how we can flourish as longevity and technology change our world, from the internationally bestselling authors of The 100-Year Life
Smart new technologies. Longer, healthier lives. Human progress has risen to great heights, but at the same time it has prompted anxiety about where we're heading. Are our jobs under threat? If we live to 100, will we ever really stop working? And how will this change the way we love, manage and learn from others?
One thing is clear: advances in technology have not been matched by the necessary innovation to our social structures. In our era of unprecedented change, we haven't yet discovered new ways of living.
Drawing from the fields of economics and psychology, Andrew J Scott and Lynda Gratton offer a simple framework based on three fundamental principles (Narrate, Explore and Relate) to give you the tools to navigate the challenges ahead. Both a personal road-map and a primer for governments, corporations and colleges, The New Long Life is the essential guide to a longer, smarter, happier life.
Julian Harcourt is the Aging2.0 Book Club moderator and runs greyafro a specialist marketing consultancy helping businesses understand/target/communicate with consumers aged over 50. Julian will be introducing the session and moderating our question and answer session.
We hope to see you then!
