Aging expert Colin Milner addresses United Nations' findings by offering "Nine Principles" for improving society's response to population aging
Date:10/2/2013

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 02, 2013

According to a United Nations study released yesterday, the world is not prepared for population aging. What can be done to improve the situation? "This demographic shift is changing societies on a global level," says aging expert Colin Milner, founder and CEO of the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA), an association that has led, connected and defined the active-aging industry for the past 12 years. "Our current models have fallen short in addressing both challenges and opportunities presented by population aging," Milner states. "Governments and organizations need new implementable models to address the accompanying wave of change. Globally, active aging is recognized as part of the solution."

Research shows that an active lifestyle can lessen the challenges and increase the opportunities associated with population aging. Active aging provides environments, programs and places that support individuals in living well and taking charge of their health and wellness. It promotes the vision of all individuals--regardless of age, socioeconomic status or health--fully engaging in life within all seven dimensions of wellness: emotional, environmental, intellectual/cognitive, physical, professional/vocational, social and spiritual.

ICAA has created "Nine Principles of Active Aging," a model to guide governments, product and service providers, employers, and the healthcare industry in how they respond to population aging. By implementing and operating by these guiding principles, organizations and agencies will be able to build a foundation for their efforts and encourage active, engaged living for people of all ages.

These principles, together with brief explanations, appear below.
