Envelhecimento saudável: comportamentos sociais e ambientais

Asghar Zaidi

The country where we are born, the environment we live in, the social circumstances that we face, our behaviour patterns, our genetic inheritance and ecology – all of these factors have an undeniable and irreversible impact on old age nowadays.

Asghar Zaidi shares the results of his research into healthy ageing and summarises the way that populations regard old age, backed by case studies of successful policies and programmes in this area. He explains the importance of social, behavioural and environmental aspects in assessing “good” ageing and considers how these same factors can result in vulnerabilities that will later influence the last stage in our lives.

A senior researcher at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, a lecturer in Gerontology at the National University of Seoul (South Korea) and the London School of Economics and Political Science, Asghar Zaidi paints a scientific picture of ageing in the world.

Presentation and bio Healthy Aging

Asghar Zaidi

3 JUN, 18:30

 

Why is it important to understand the links between social, behavioural and environmental factors in order to assess how aging societies experience a healthy aging process? How do the transitions of the course of life, influenced by social, behavioural and environmental factors result in cumulative vulnerabilities and/or resilience in old age? How are these vulnerabilities linked to the quality of life and well-being of old people? How do they vary between countries? And what are the policy and monitoring instruments that can help to increase the welfare of people when they act in different contexts, and how can these instruments be improved?

These are the questions underlying the lecture to be given by Asghar Zaidi, a professor and senior research fellow at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, Professor of Gerontology at Seoul National University, Korea, and Visiting Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He will look at both the global north and south, highlighting policies and programmes of success in this area of healthy aging.

Who wants to live forever? Longevidade: Regeneração, Precisão, Implicações Sociais

Research in regenerative medicine and genetics, the individualisation of healthcare and the accuracy of diagnoses takes us to the possibility of prolonging our lifetime. What knowledge and techniques are being applied? What transformations do they bring to the way in which we care for and protect our health? What economic and social implications may occur? What are the biological and ethical limits of this search for a perpetual life?

In this lecture cycle, we will be looking for answers to these and other questions and revealing the challenges that we face, in order to welcome the contribution of those people who are living for longer.
