Challenges and Best Practices of Ageing Societies – Falling Walls Circle Round Table 2023
Population ageing is a global phenomenon that affects both developing and developed countries. From social isolation and loneliness to economic implications and pressure on healthcare systems, increasing life expectancy and declining birth rates lead to a multitude of key challenges affecting society as a whole. Addressing these challenges requires a comprehensive approach that involves government and healthcare policies, social services, community initiatives, intergenerational collaboration, and technological innovations. As with all global challenges, the transnational approach including exchange on best practice is particularly promising. This panel discussion will gather speakers from Berlin and Oxford with a high expertise on issues regarding the challenges of rapidly ageing societies and spotlight potential solutions and approaches to tackle the consequences in a transdisciplinary way.
