Seminar: "Healthy and Active Ageing in Japan and Spain"


This seminar, hosted by Kobe University and Casa Asia, discusses current research for healthy and active ageing in Japan and Spain. Japanese and Spanish speakers will present the latest research and the seminar will include comparisons of both societies.

An ageing society is not only an economic challenge, it is inherently a health and human security issue both in Japan and Spain. Dealing with the problem of an ageing population combined with a diminishing number of children and increased life expectancy is the key to decreasing the pressure on our shrinking workforces and health insurance budgets.
