Rotman Documentary Insights presents:

Your Hundred Year Life - A Film About Rethinking Ageing in The 21st Century

Join us for the film screening followed by a panel and reception.

Co-presented by: National Institute on Aging and KPA Advisory Services

Event Synopsis:

How can we avert the global catastrophe awaiting our elderly?

The combination of longer lives and falling birthrates is raising the proportion of older people relative to younger ones in many countries, including Canada. While we know the numbers behind this ageing reality, we know less about its social, health, and economic consequences. What do governments, pensions funds, social support programs, corporations and other communities need to understand to best adapt to the coming future? The new documentary, Your Hundred Year Life, produced by Dutch entrepreneur, academic, and filmmaker Dr. Theo Kocken, explores these critical questions with insights from academics, researchers and other leading authorities.

Following film, an expert panel will explore the film’s questions about the social, health, and economic consequences of ageing in a Canadian setting.
