In breve

According to the World Report on Ageing and Health, the world’s  population aged over 60 years will go to nearly 2 billion from the current 900 million; Japan is the country with the longest life expectancy, Italy is second in the world and first in Europe. These demographic changes pose social and health problems that must be addressed not so much from a welfare point of view as by spreading lifestyles that minimize the period of non-self-sufficiency of an individual’s life. The volume provides an overview of the phenomenon of ageing using a multidisciplinary approach and collecting evidences of good practices from different countries, many of which developed in the framework of the tempus Project ctae and presented in various Conferences and international Seminars that were held from 2013 to 2017.
