A commitment to lifelong learning is the key to a future, which supports increased opportunities for workers of all generations.
But to get to this point, traditional education and work-based training models must change to address and support longer life expectancies.
Shaping their own career paths – people in the future could complete several study programs, start work in their 30s, pursue multiple professions, and choose to extend their working lives.
As we focus more on intellectual skills, the influence age has on our working lives will continue to decrease.
In the future, more of us will choose to work beyond the traditional retirement age.

Our most important years lie ahead of us – not behind us!
This gives each of us the opportunity to reinvent ourselves at one point.
As life expectancies increase, our perception of age and aging will continue to change.
Age is often seen as a barrier to personal development. But it doesn’t have to be this way...

...proving that learning new skills for the future is possible – regardless of how old we are.

My Vision for Demographic Change
As a driver of innovation, the long-term success of organizations will lie in their willingness to embrace diversity of age. Traditionally, university places, venture capital loans, and training programs were the privilege of the young. In the future, people of all generations will enjoy greater access to work and educational opportunities.
