  • UK Foresight Ageing Population
  • 1999 - 2001 Cycle
  • Foresight is a national capacity to think ahead.
    The aim is to increase UK exploitation of
  • Foresight Programme 2004

UK Foresight Ageing Population
  • 2001 Conclusions

Doom or Boom?
  • The AGE SHIFT can be seen as a portent of doom or
    a challenge and an opportunity
  • We are faced with an ageing population
  • People are staying younger for longer

Key Areas Where the Ageing Population Will Impact
  • Employment, lifelong learning, leisure
  • Finance
  • Health and social care
  • Design of products and services
  • Use of information and communications technology

Implications for Employment
  • Current perceptions about working life/retirement
    need to change
  • Reconsider the notion of formal retirement.
  • Flexible approach to retirement supported by
    flexible working patterns
  • Development of portfolio careers
  • Treatment on basis of competence rather than age
  • Positive incentives to remain in the workforce

Implications for Pensions
  • Can we sustain a culture in which people enter
    the workforce later and leave earlier?
  • When the state retirement pensions was introduced
    life expectancy beyond pensionable age was about
    3 years.
  • Keeping people economically active saves public
    money and boosts economy.

Lifelong Learning
  • Two out of three jobs require ICT and we shall
    create a new fault line in the employment of
    older people unless lifelong learning becomes an
    established part of our programme
  • Tessa Jowell
  • Minister for State for Employment

New Financial Services for an Older Population
  • Pensions
  • Equity Release
  • Long Term Care
  • The industry needs to differentiate its products
    so that it can cater both for younger, richer
    retirees and older, poorer pensioners

Implications for Health and Social Care
  • The fastest growing age group is the over 80s
  • Scope for technological advances to support
    independent living
  • Education for healthy ageing vital
  • Caring for more older people creating pressure on
    public sector budgets
  • Regional implications

Inclusion by Design
  • Design for the young and youll exclude the old
    design for the old and youll include the young
  • Gero von Randow
  • Siemens

Information and Communications Technology (ICT)
  • Internet shopping is only the start - there will
    be changes across the board, from education,
    healthcare, access to information, personal
    contacts and communication, public services and
    transport, through local and national government
    and democratic processes
  • As ICT use spreads into older age groups - and
    older people constitute an ever large proportion
    of the population - their lifestyles and needs
    will increasingly determine the demand for ICT
    based products, services and applications

The Grey Pound - Opportunities
  • Changes in existing markets
  • New home markets
  • New international markets

  • Missing the boat!
  • Risk of increasing social exclusion
  • Need to balance needs of older people with
    reasonable taxation of others

The Age Shift- Priorities for Action
  • Recommendations fall into three groups
  • Helping business to meet the age shift
  • Planning for an ageing society
  • New research directions
