Mental Health

The current crisis in mental and emotional health is the result of a lack of accessible, effective solutions.

Later Life

There are one billion people in the world aged over 60. By 2050, there will be two billion. By 2100, there will be three billion. As people live longer, older people make up an ever-larger proportion of the population. Soon, we can expect to see hundreds of millions of people living beyond the age of 100.


In recent years, the impact of automation and globalisation on jobs and communities has dominated headlines. We have witnessed a political backlash from places such as the US “rust belt,” where many people feel left behind by the economic changes of the last few decades. In addition, many citizens fear that the next waves of automation and globalisation could leave behind a new cohort of people and places.
