Theme: What should I do with the rest of my life?

This is a commonly asked question of profound significance for people of all ages and backgrounds.

‘What should I do with the rest of my life?' is relevant to all of us.

This knowledge café will commence with a few speakers taking 5 minutes to explain what their current circumstances are, what they think they should do with the rest of their lives and why.

This will be a basis for a knowledge café discussion where a wide variety of people will engage with this topic from different perspectives.
