For the first time ever the young and middle aged can now expect to become the old. That means we have a new lifetime imperative to age well  if we are to make the most of one of the greatest achievements of the 20th century – life expectancy increases. We have to ensure that life isn't just longer but healthier, productive and engaged for longer.  If we underestimate the capacity of older people or our own later years then we won’t invest in or support those later years and will be unable to achieve a longevity dividend.
