Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2030, one-quarter of the Swiss population will be older than 65. Life expectancy will continue to rise in the industrialized countries. The evolution will fundamentally challenge our social system and our working environment. Which challenges are facing the ageing society? What role will older people play in our society? Is getting old a loss of ability to work? What would a work environment for the ageing society look like? What philosophy is our current health system based on? Are our attitudes to health, disease and death still up to date? This session is co-organized with the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches (SEK-FEPS). Simultaneous interpretation in English and German
