Increasing longevity will be the biggest social change in Australia over the next 30 years. It will change the way all Australians live, work and play, not just older Australians. Yet we have only recently begun to consider the implications of this change.
The public policy task is to turn ageing from a threat into an opportunity, to enable citizens and institutions to create social and economic benefits from ageing rather than simply manage social and economic costs.
At the Centre for Applied Policy in Positive Ageing (CAPPA) we will develop applied policy research so that longer lives in Australia are a positive experience – we can turn this sleeping giant of public policy into an opportunity for Australia.
