There are eleven new rules of living longer...
My Mum, Doreen, has a 1 in 9 chance of living to 100. I have 1 in 5. My daughter, Gemma, has a 1 in 4 chance, and her daughter Phoebe, has better odds than 1 in 3. See how these four generations of women fare in the living longer stakes, compared with the men of the family and how technology plays its part for all generations.
Explore the new rules of living longer - how to survive your longer life, and get a grip on how to live happily ever after.
Living Longer = Working Longer
But how much longer? What will work look like?
How will this be different for my children, and their children? Will a robot take my job, or care for me in later life? How about both?
Technology + Demographic Change = Life as We Don't Know it Yet
The nature of work itself is changing. Plural careers will become the norm, including making money from your sidelines and hobbies
Learn from a four year old
For Phoebe, the iPad means that her shared learnings are no longer limited to the things she has direct experience of. It isn't bound by how much glue, glitter or noise we can tolerate - the edges of learning are now boundless, and could (should) be lifelong for all of us.
Women will face a tougher challenge
Women live longer than men. Financially you might already be 40% worse off. Why? How do you get back on track?
