JAPAN: LAND OF THE SETTING SUN

Share on / /

Pascal Meunier's pictures on GEO France depict Japan's aging population. In 1975 the land was the youngest of developed countries but now it is the contrary. Today the 27% of its population is composed of elderly people; prisons become retirement homes and the number of old homeless people increases. What has been the reaction? The use of more therapeutic robots; the organizaiont of new post-pension activites  to offset to lack of juvenile workforce and the creation of shared houses to fight solitude.
