Last month, UK Minister for Employment, Mims Davies MP, announced the shortlist of our international Work for tomorrow competition that is seeking to identify and award the most promising innovations responding to an ageing workforce.
We have had a fantastic response with almost 50 submissions from across the world and a shortlist spanning ideas from Australia, Brazil, the UK, US, Ireland to the Philippines. (You can take a look at the shortlist and their videos on our programme page).
Over the coming months, we want to bring together our innovators with employers, policymakers, journalists, third sector leaders and academia to share good practice and help our solutions grow. Come along to our two pitching sessions on 15 February for your chance to hear about their ideas first-hand and ask your questions about how we can better support mental and physical health in the workplace, match people to jobs based on their skills, challenge ageism in the workplace and foster flexibility as we emerge from the pandemic.
And save the date for our awards ceremony on 22 March 2022 at the Catalyst in Newcastle, UK (and virtually) to celebrate with the winners of Work for tomorrow.
This report shows the real life of older adults in Japan. Their labour participation rate, financial assets, relationships with neighbours are described first, and then systems such as pension, medical and long-term care are being explained with numbers and figures.
ILC-Japan has been promoting public-industry collaboration to enhance support for older adults in daily living. After conducting studies with community support coordinators and creating a tool with tips to make improvements, we are now in the implementation stage to build actual collaboration between supermarkets and municipalities.
This Summer, ILC-UK's Founder and Executive President, and one of the founding members of the ILC Global Alliance, Baroness Sally Greengross OBE passed away. She was an inspiration to us all across the ILC family, both professionally and personally, and her legacy will continue to live on.
