2020 Pro-Aging & LOHAS: Geriatric Society

Health Care, Nursing & LOHAS Senior Preventive Medicine

August 5th – 7th, 2020 | Hokkaido, Japan
Nowadays people are living longer, hence the proportion of the older people are growing. It is identified that the number of people over the age of 60 will be double by the 2050. Therefore, it is important to address the issues, whether that being medical treatment, social welfare or financial enterprises, more focuses are being put on the demands of the people in their golden ages, alongside business ideas to capture the rapidly growing senior citizen market being carried out, to meet the needs of a silver age.
With one of the world’s lowest fertility rates combining with the highest life expectancy, Japan is facing an unprecedented challenge. The Japanese government and other stakeholders are tackling this challenge with a sense of crisis, using high-tech. Panasonic has developed a smart walker that uses artificial intelligence algorithms to help users stay mobile and independent for as long as possible.
As the labor structure changes, new lifestyles have also emerged, which results in innovative industries and demands. “Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS)”, a demographic defining a particular market segment related to sustainable living, has been served as one of the key spirit in the field of this.
This year, the 2020 Pro-Aging & LOHAS International conference will create the outstanding platform to engage in dialogue for and of the elderly and we invite you to join us in Hokkaido, Japan, from August 5th to the 7th.

Why Hokkaido, Japan?
Japan has long been known for its widespread respect for its seniors and a powerful sense of obligation to care for them. The involvement and responsibility of the family members in care was even formally embodied in the “Japanese style welfare state”.
In 2000, Japan introduced long term care insurance (LCTI), designed to provide cover to all those over the age of 65, according to their needs. As such, the system is one of the most comprehensive social care systems for the elderly in the world, built around the aim of reducing the burden of care for families.
Therefore, we believe that Japan is one of the best places to discuss a significant matter that affects the globe.Alongside with one of the world’s trendiest lifestyle, LOHAS, we, the 2020 Pro-Aging & LOHAS International conference, invite you to join us in Hokkaido, Japan from August 5th to the 7th.
