The phenomenon of an ageing population and its impact on society shall be the main focus of the forthcoming Economist Summit entitled: “The Silver Tsunami: Overcoming the waves of an ageing population”. The event is scheduled to take place on June 23rd, 2020 at the Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso, Vouliagmeni, Athens. Systematically low birth rates and higher life expectancy levels are transforming the population to such an extent that we urgently need to address this important issue through an open and meaningful dialogue on the way forward.

Topics to be discussed include:

Social security and pensions: shall we expect a higher financial burden on the shrinking working population?
The role of the private sector in social security and pensions
Climate change: how is a greying population related to global warming?
Do we have the appropriate infrastructure to accommodate for an ageing population?
AI – humanoid robots in an ageing society
The other side of the coin: the positive impact of an ageing population
Will the silver tsunami affect political thought?
