MOOC Rethinking Ageing: Are we prepared to live longer?
Upcoming sessions start on 26th April and 27th June
Population ageing is occurring in nearly every country around the word. This MOOC takes a multidisciplinary approach to explore the impact of living longer and takes into account the technological advancements, the built environment, mental health, demographics, end of life issues, leadership, economics and ethics to rethink what it means to 'age well' now and in the future.
The course explores the demographic shift that is occurring around the world as people continue to live longer and have fewer children. This course dives into the challenges and opportunities that are likely to occur over the next 25 years in a multidisciplinary approach that includes 15 academics from over 10 disciplines ranging from demography, to gerontology, architecture and design, health informatics, social work and economics in order to bring a broader perspective to 'rethink ageing' and help lead all of us to ideas and resolutions that are more holistic in their approach.
