Livia Oláh, docent of demography at SUDA, was speaking about the rapidly ageing population in the workshop “Active ageing”, arranged on 21 September by Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University, the Royal Institute of Technology and University of Tokyo. During the presentation, Oláh stressed that sustainable societal development requires a balanced age structure in which reasonably high fertility levels play a key part. The event was part of the visit that a delegation from Tokyo is making to Stockholm in order to sign a collaboration agreement with Stockholm’s three top universities.
