Age, ageing & health - Living for ever - how and why?
We are born, we grow up, we mature, we work, we produce and bring up children, we then slowly and progressively become old with or without a period of age-related diseases, and eventually we die.
But this arrow of time is not that simple and linear. Our age goes forward and backward depending on how we feel physically and mentally in a personal and a social context.
- When and how do we become old?
- How do we maintain health later in life?
- What is the price for a longer life?
- What does the latest scientific research tell us about ageing, health and life?
- What if we become immortal?
Scientific research has made us understand, appreciate and develop effective methods for maintaining, improving and recovering health at all ages and, possibly, for as long as we wish.
This interactive workshop will encourage us all you to explore our own notions, viewpoints and biases with respect to when do we become old, what does health and age mean to us individually.
