Solution

We believe it’s possible to re-imagine the way we age so more older people can live a great life.

The Ageing Challenge is looking for people, teams, entrepreneurs, businesses, and organisations in the community who have ideas for new and better programs, platforms and new ventures that are designed to make positive social change for older people.

We want to see Australia lead the way with more innovation that creates positive social outcomes for older people. 

We want to build a culture of innovation for older people in Australia. We want to see more older people thrive. 


How can we enable Boomers to contribute and connect to their communities?

How can we enable people living alone to connect, contribute and live the lives they want?
