With more people on the planet aged over 65 than under 5 for the first
time in history, this seminar will examine the implications of the
latest UN population forecasts for economies and societies, in places
ranging from the U.S. and Europe to China and India. It will consider
alternative demographic scenarios, including the possibility that we are
entering a world with far more only children.
This event is open to the public. Please RSVP to attend either virtually or in-person. Lunch will be served to those who attend in person.
