"Hints for living in a super-aging society" (Mar.5, 2018)2018.03.01
Japan is a super-aging society. With the aging of the baby boom generation, which makes up the largest portion of the population, we have started to hear more about various problems and the public anxiety that these bring about. At the individual level, there is a lot of attention around the topic of "healthy life expectancy."
However, little is done to educate the general public on the research being carried out on super-aging societies as well as the measures being implemented to deal with this, and we are rarely prompted to give this issue any thought.
In this seminar, we will introduce some research and other ongoing initiatives on the challenges of super-aging societies. Through this, we hope to make it an event where the participants can pick up some useful hints for living in a super-aging society, and ultimately spread public interest and awareness on this pressing matter.
The speakers at this event are all actively involved in aging-related research, albeit from completely different angles. It is our goal to use this occasion to significantly raise awareness of this area and that attention continues to grow on the topic of super-aging societies.
