ReWirement for Good
2019-11-22
11:30-13:00

A whole range of emerging trends is compelling us to rethink the concept of Retirement. People are living much longer and many may reach 100 years old and beyond. They are living healthier and will have a few decades of active life after retired. Many are keen to continue contribute to the society after retired. Sadly, a growing number of senior citizens are not having the financial means to enjoy the unexpected longevity. All these point to the need for a paradigm shift on how you should live your life after the end of career. 'ReWirement' appears to be an alternative and it is likely to replace the out-dated notion of Retirement in the decades to come. 'ReWirement' refers to the fundamental rethinking of how one should plan and actualize their living so that they could live an exciting, fulfilling and rewarding life after they stop working for a living.
