Our Life in an Ageing Society – How the young generation solves various problems associated with ageing

Date and Time : 3rd August 2018, 13:00 – 17:45 (symposium),18:00 – 20:00 (reception)

Venue: University College London (UCL),Christopher Ingold Building, XLG2 Auditorium (symposium) and Wilkins Building, South Cloister (reception)

The society of ageing populations presents various challenges globally and to all generations. Japan’s experience as a such society with the world’s highest life expectancy, and its great need for solutions, exemplifies the urgency of the problem. As UK organizations including the government also recognize challenges and opportunities of the ageing society, Japan and UK are actively cooperating and having discussions on this subject. As a part of such UK-Japan interaction, UCL-Japan Youth Challenge (UJYC) organizes this symposium in collaboration with Osaka University.
