Social Impact Leadership Series —

Living Longer + Smaller Families = Older World: the Mother of All Trends
 

The aging of the world's population changes every important relationship we have. The fates of ourselves, our families and communities, of nations and the world depend on how we navigate these unprecedented shifts. 

On September 18, join The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation to hear from Ted C. Fishman — author of China, Inc. and Shock of Gray — about how global demographic change will shape the future globally, with extra focus on Hong Kong, where many of the strongest trends are at play. He also will explore how families, firms, and leaders can respond to accelerated population aging, both in their own countries and abroad.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation is a partnership between The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the University of Chicago, and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
