‘How to get to 100- and Enjoy it’ was an event which took place in London during the ESRC Festival of 2014. The event look into the chances of living to 100 and how our early years of life, our family life, where we live, our lifestyle and work effect these chances. With one in three children born in 2012 expected to live to 100, these questions have become important to our generation and generations going forward.
The event itself made the most of having iPads which audience members could use to navigate through the latest research findings through interactive games, quizzes, pictures and interviews.
