Extra Time – 10 Lessons for An Ageing World

Date: Sunday 22nd September 2019
Venue: St Peter’s Church
Time: 2pm
Tickets: SOLD OUT £12 (Students: £10)

Baroness Camilla Cavendish, former political advisor to David Cameron – and the one who first mooted a sugar tax to combat obesity – and now an award-winning columnist, tackles one of the biggest challenges facing the human population today: an ageing world. By next year, for the first time in history, the number of people aged 65 and over will outnumber children aged five and under. But our systems are lagging woefully behind this new reality.

After travelling across the world in a carefully researched and deeply human investigation to understand how different countries are responding to these unprecedented challenges, she offers some ground-breaking and, at times, uncomfortable ideas on how we can cope – and benefit – from a changing world.

‘So sensible, so substantially researched, so briskly written, so clear in its arguments, that one wishes [she] was still whispering into the prime ministerial ear.’ The Times
