Things you might have missed

The Crystal Awards took place last night, as well as the Opening Concert. Watch them back on the event page, or read all about this year's awardees here. Introducing the three artists, Hilde Schwab reflected on the power of art and culture in our societies. She explained how culture, "breaks barriers, builds bridges and ignites a sense of community and belonging".

The latest edition of the Chief Economists Outlook warns of more uncertainty ahead, with over half of those surveyed expecting the global economy to weaken this year. However, there is optimism for the potential of AI, particularly in high-income economies.

We also published a new report focused on the impact of an ageing global population. The Longevity Economy Principles: The Foundation for a Financially Resilient Future looks at how we can build financial resilience among all generations, promoting financial security and healthy living.
