Working together across the generational divide to make business work.
A view from three generations

 The Foresight Programmein the Government Office for Science (GO Science) undertakes multi-disciplinary projects addressing key issues for the economy, society and the environment, where science and technology can offer valuable insights and solutions.

 The Foresight Future of an Ageing Population Project is using an evidence-based approach to consider the challenges and opportunities of an ageing society, both now and looking forward to 2025 and 2040, and to inform and support government policy. The project is informed by an expert groupwhich is chaired by Professor Sarah Harper.

 We are pleased to invite you to an event where a panel of cross generational invited experts will discuss the key topic of how the different generations may work together to promote successful business.
