Geneva University, in conjunction with Hokkaido University (Japan), is pleased to open for registration a course on:
The Challenges of Ageing in Switzerland and Japan; Its Social Perspectives
Date and place : the 2nd to the 11th of September 2019 at Geneva University.
The 10-day course, using a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approach, looks from both Swiss and Japanese viewpoints. It considers, and attempts some answers to, the problems of ageing : aspects such as environment, mobility, caring, family and social links, costs and the opportunities for society as a whole.
There will be keynote talks, practical exercises in problem-solving, as well as comparative and complementary views on issues linked to training. On-site visits are included (UN organisations, Palais des Nations, etc.).
Our speakers will be professors from Japan (global health), professors from Geneva University involved in the various fields to be considered (psychology, education, health, social, history), and workers from NGOs and international organisations.
