Our goal is simple. To create a world where age does not matter.
In this turbulent time of deeply embedded divides and entrenched stereotypes, we are bringing together the collective wisdom and constructive participation of everyone - of all ages, from all cultures, and across all geographies - to redesign a new society for all generations.
From technology to health; from education to architecture; from work to leisure, we are embracing intergenerational collaboration and thinking – to create new products, new services, new campaigns, new mindsets, new rules and new behaviours.
The Age of No Retirement is a movement for intergenerational action and new opportunities for citizens, workers, businesses and communities of all ages – working together to challenge the narrative of division and difference and create a new age of unity and hope where our age, younger or older, does not matter...

Is lack of confidence preventing us from finding or progressing in work?
With the uncertainty caused by the vote to leave the EU it is more important than ever that we unite and focus on what we all share in common. All ages must work together for a better future... (more).
The imagery of ageing is still heavily stereotypical – decline, loss, and negative. We want to change this and we are looking to you to help us in our latest competition. Find out how to take part here.

The Story Exchange
Share your stories, help change the world.
We need to hear your experiences, observations and ideas about how we might approach some of the challenges that lie ahead of us. Sharing our collective experiences will not only help challenge the narrative of ageing, but we hope will create opportunities for intergenerational collaboration and inspiration.
Whilst these experiences may sometimes appear everyday or ordinary, they can also buck the trend, enrich, inspire and surprise us all. We believe that there is no 'normal' experience when it comes to getting older and we're passionate about documenting all those stories that might make us view age in a new and inspiring light.
We want to hear from you. Tell us about the best of times, the challenges you have overcome, the opportunities that you see ahead of us, the things that you feel need to change. Get your voice heard.
All stories will be published on our new storytelling platform – The Story Exchange.
