This month we are focused on finalising preparations for the CEPAR International Conference which will take place on 3-5 July at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. Leading experts, researchers, policymakers, and industry professionals will share the latest research and policy and industry perspectives on the dynamics of an ageing demographic.

Everyone is welcome to join, and if you would like to participate, please register here.

Themed ‘Population Ageing: Causes, Consequences and Responses’, the 3-day conference will provide a unique platform for multidisciplinary discussions and insights into the challenges and opportunities presented by one of the major economic and social challenges of the 21st century.
