Research on the Implication of Elderly Education From the Perspective of Active Aging

Zhenghui FAN


With economic development and social progress, more and more countries in the world have stepped into an aging society. The concept of active aging has also been recognized by the governments of many countries. China is also facing the problem of population aging. There have been great developments in elderly education in China in the past few decades. However, there is still an imbalance between the society’s increasing demand for elderly education and the supply side of elderly education. The traditional model of elderly education cannot meet the requirements of the development of the new era. It is necessary to learn from the feasible practices of other countries, and combine the possibilities brought by the rapid development of information technology in the new era, to innovate the education for the elderly for the aim of achieving the life-long growth of individual lives, and the realization of sustainable development of society.
