Episode 13 Lessons from Japan

Dr Doug and Dave explore how Japan’s population of people 60+ has quadrupled over the past 40 years.

Children under 14 used to be 24% of the population and this figure has shrunk to 12%.

The economic implications of these figures are staggering and this challenge is shared by countries around the globe.

On the sunny side, Japan is investing heavily in products and solutions for its growing ageing population. Robots, monitors, and other technological progressions are making daily tasks easier for Japanese citizens.

Local councils have identified the changing needs of their society and are adapting public spaces in response.

Parks across Europe and the US are being fitted out with low impact exercise equipment and quizzes to exercise both the body and mind.
