Shrinking smartly and sustainably

When: 11 October at 4:30 PM
Where: Online, Swapcard

This workshop brings together policy-makers and experts to discuss policies on adapting to shrinking populations in regions and countries experiencing sustained and strong population losses. To make the conversation accessible for diverse groups of participants, the organisers will propose several 'imagined futures' based on foresight analysis to stir debate and identify policy trade-offs and challenges for different types of regions.

You can register for the workshop and see other sessions on the event website.
