1 THE AGE OF NO RETIREMENT? April 2015 The People's History Museum Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3ER
2 a movement for change... We cannot solve problems with the same kind of thinking that created them. Albert Einstein We are living longer. And whether we welcome it or not, change is inevitable - in how we live our lives, and how we shape society around us. Now is the time to explore together the opportunities that this change could mean for us all - in work, in education, in our communities, in the world as a whole. And for you. Whether you're young or old, this is an issue about YOU. And how we think and what we do today will affect us all, both now and in the future. 'The Age of No Retirement?' is a collaborative movement including employers, policy makers, innovators, designers, academics and citizens in creating a society without age barriers, where skills, capabilities, knowledge and wisdom are valued whatever your age - young or old. Join us at the People's History Museum in April to prototype your future. The People s History Museum is a place which has the power of cooperative and collective will to change things for the better seeped deep in its DNA. What better place than this to show the power of working together to reshape British society along ageless intergenerational lines?
3 Our focus on ageing in the UK needs to shift. We need a spark, perhaps from an unexpected source, to get us thinking differently. Going digital, getting messages going viral could get us all thinking differently about how we can promote sustainable ageing and lasting change. Rhidian Hughes Visiting Professor in Social Care, Buckinghamshire University
4 days 1 & 2 The structure 4 Themes Each theme consisting of 6 Co-Design Labs A. INTER- GENERATIONAL b. DESIGN FOR CHANGE C. ONE-LIFE D. WORK & EMPLOYABILITY 24 Co-Design Labs Each 2-hour Co-Design Lab will consist of the following: Facilitation by a creative leader who will move the group away from ego thinking to a more collective understanding of the issues, drawing out wide-reaching insights towards the building of a framework for action. Led by 6 co-design leaders: 3 voices from industry (large organisations, corporations), and 3 voices from a combination of entrepreneurs, academics, the government and third sector. Culminating in a documented, co-designed prototype - an implementable project. All 245 prototypes will be put on display in the central Engine Room exhibit over the course of the event.
5 Day 1 Co-Design lab Topics (Monday 27th April, AM) A WE RE IN THIS TOGETHER. IT S NOT US AND THEM. Objective: To explore ways to achieve intergenerational/ multigenerational communication and productivity. 1. Research and anecdotal evidence indicates that the performance 'intergenerational' teams is superior to that of teams made up of just young people or just older people. If this is true then why aren't businesses listening or acting? What can we do to make them? 2. How can we get the media to start telling more positive intergenerational stories? Where and how can we find the stories that will make the media take notice? 3. How do we facilitate more contact between different ages in society and within the community? How can we build richer, more dynamic intergenerational communities? 4. How can we get brands to adopt a multigenerational design process to appeal to a multigenerational market? 5. Can a multigenerational approach help break down cultural, racial, ethnic and socio-economic barriers? 6. We have to involve all generations in co-designing all aspects of the future - spaces, places, products, services, architecture, town planning, etc. How can we do this? (Monday 27th April, PM) B DESIGN A FUTURE THAT MEETS ALL OUR NEEDS. Objective: How can we place design at the forefront of age-positive change, and on an equal footing with research, policy and planning? 1. Have we listened to the so called experts for too long? Is it time for the researchers and the analysts to embrace design? 2. How can local authorities engage the citizen to collectively drive inspired change around ageing issues? 3. Is it the Age Sector driven by old thinking? 4. How can we accelerate the development of Innovate UK's Long Term Care Revolution'? 5. What does a new iconography for older people look like? Should we redesign or scrap the current one? 6. How can designers become community change agents?
6 Day 2 Co-Design lab Topics (Tuesday 28th April, AM) C WE ARE UNITED IN ONE LIFE Objective: Let s take a whole-life perspective and not one of a sequence of disconnected life stages ? What skills, education and support are needed to get through everything that life throws at you over the course of a century? 2. A job-for-life is a redundant concept. What skills should we be equipping our children with for a different working future? 3. Should we be encouraging a 'social CV' to support or even replace the traditional CV? 4. What could a lifelong approach to education and learning look like? 5. Why do we see others in terms of life stages, but see our own life as a continuum? How can we see people as a whole and not pigeon-hole them into narrowly defined life stages? 6. To what extent does the chronological age badge hinder the value or potential of any individual? (Tuesday 28th April, PM) D NEW MODELS FOR WORK AND LIFE To realise the true socio-economic potential and value of older workers. Prove it. Share it. Talk about it. Build on it. 1. How can employers afford to retain older, experienced workers who are accustomed to the idea of regular salary increases? 2. Are over-50 workers seen as valuable to employers and, if so, is that value felt outside the Diversity & Inclusion department? How can we make employers see the benefits of the 50+ employee? 3. How can we develop 'returnship' programmes? 4. What are the key elements of a modern retirement plan? How can we communicate the many options that are available as real positive alternatives to the current finance-only model? 5. Why is the 'Midlife Career Review' important? How can it best be implemented? 6. How important is flexibility to working longer? But does flexibility undermine the worker's value in the eyes of the employer?
