January: Japan Turns Gray (and we will too)
Presenter: T.R. Reid
With more than a quarter of its population over 65, Japan is making major economic and cultural adjustments to deal with the flood of kōreisha (高齢者)-- "upper age persons." This brings some problems; the nation now has more deaths than births every year. But many kōreisha are having the time of their lives --growing old and loving it. As other wealthy democracies, including the U.S., face the same demographic transition, Japan can teach us how to turn gray with humor and grace.
Tuesday, Jan. 15th; 11:30-1:30
Lunches will be provided for those who register for both lunch and the talk; you can also RSVP for just the talk (no lunch included).
