Later Living Conference
Increasing Life Expectancy and the Implications for the Built Environment
16 October 2017 | Willis Towers Watson | 71 High Holborn | London
The ULI UK Later Living conference will look at how the built environment is responding to increasing life expectancy, and its implications. Through panel discussions, presentations and case studies, the conference will showcase global best practice. We will discuss the changing needs of an aging population and the influence it may have on urban realm from the traditional retirement living sector but also considerations for communities, workplace, infrastructure, policy and investment.
It is forecast that 20.2% of the population will be aged 65 and over in 2025, rising to 24.6% in 2045 (source: ONS). Currently only 2% of the UK’s housing stock is designated as retirement accommodation and it houses just 1% of Britons in their 60s. This compares with 17% of Americans, and 13% of Australians and New Zealanders, who live in retirement housing (source: Housing Futures, Platinum Generation, Strutt & Parker).
The conference offers an opportunity to hear insights from industry experts on the demographic and economic changes and to discuss innovative solutions.
