ENVELHECIMENTO & FUTURISMO (AGING & FUTURISM)

Sao Paulo
Tue, Apr 26, 7:00 PM (GMT-3)

Sao Paulo

The world is aging and in somes countries, such as Brazil, actually surprisingly fast . This phenomenon comes with economic, social, cultural and educational challenges. Are we prepared to face them and take advantage of the great opportunities that come with the increase in longevity gained in the last century? Peter Kronston, head of the Copenhagen Institute, a non-profit think-tank, will discuss the potential scenarios. Very recently the Copenhagen Institute for Futurism added "Aging" to its main areas of studies, and for the first time such discussion will take place in Brazil. Prof. Egidio Dorea, coordinator of USP 60+ (the arm of the University of São Paulo for older adults), where over 10 thousand students regularly attend a variety of courses, and creator of the campaign #sousessentamais (""Imsixtyplus") against ageism, will interview Peter Kronston and also comment on ageism in Brazil, and its negative effects on society.
