They say 75 is the new 65. Time to re-imagine ageing.

A 75-year-old today is expected to have as many years left to live as a 65-year-old did in 1950, meaning once we reach retirement age, we could still have decades of meaningful life ahead of us. It is time to think of later life as a time for new opportunities rather than decline. 

Tackling a rapidly ageing population, social innovators across Asia have been developing solutions to better support older people in working, playing, and living. Join the conversation at SIRF 2021 to explore the role of social innovation and participatory design in the making of age-friendly communities, and identify ways forward for the future of ageing with leading experts.
