A discussion about the implications of a longer life expectancy on the way we work and live.
Today, most people in developed countries such as Switzerland and the US spend roughly the first 20 years of their life growing up and getting educated, followed by about 40 years in the workforce and 20 years of retirement—ideally in good health. But what happens when we suddenly spend 60 years in the workforce?
Join us for a discussion on how to design a 100 year life, including reflections on the model of a multi-stage approach, side-preneurship and how to start experimenting with this today.
The discussion is guided by Sebastian Kernbach, Assistant Professor at the University of St.Gallen and visiting scholar at Stanford University and Columbia University and fellow of the World Demographic Forum.
