Demographic Changes and the Aging Population Around the World

Demographic Changes and the Aging Population Around the World
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

The current aging population is unprecedented, without parallel in world history. By the year 2050, an estimated two billion people will be aged 60 and over and the proportion of the world’s population of older adults will double. The aging population will dramatically alter many facets of human life and will affect every man, woman and child. Shrinking work forces, expanding needs for health systems, governments’ ability to provide financial security, changes in retirement age, and interaction between different generations will have many social, economic, and political implications in our lives. Join us for this interesting discussion on the effects of demographic changes around the world.
