22 Jun Theme Announcement
The theme of Aarhus Symposium Focus 2016 is “Demographic changes – How will we work, age, and live?”
Looking five years ahead, the generation entering the Danish labour force is smaller than the retiring generation. Already by 2017, Danish employment will be at its structural level creating problematic conditions for businesses. This may lead to the following questions: Which actions do business leaders need to take now to prepare for this shift in labour availability? How do legislators create the best conditions for future growth while addressing these demographic challenges?
On October 31, 2016, three experts will share their individual perspectives on how we will work, age, and live through an economic discussion. The speakers will be announced during this fall.
Take a moment to reflect on the different dimensions of this year’s focus as illustrated in the chart above.
