Older people’s role in the economy, as consumers, investors, and workers is changing fast. As generation X hit their sixties, Australia cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the past. Ongoing, meaningful economic participation ensures the wellbeing of older people, and also delivers economic benefits for all.

The National Policy Forum will consider the impact of policy reform after the 2023 Federal Budget. It will go on to map the emerging challenges, and opportunities, that the changing regulatory and cultural framework present, to older people, business, and the community sector.

Bringing together leaders from Government, Business, Academia, and the Community Sector, the forum will consider what needs to change to maximise value for everyone from our ageing population. Our exciting list of speakers include:

Professor Hazel Bateman
ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research
The Superannuation (and) Savings Lens

Brendan Coates
Grattan Institute
The Big Picture – Trends and Countertrends

Emma Dawson
Per Capita
The Road less Travelled – Hidden Opportunities and Cautionary Tales
