|Aiming toward the healthy and spiritual enriched society|
|Now, aging society in advanced countries is unavoidable reality and a lot of issues have been raised in various fields. Declining birthrate speeds up aging population and brings fewer children and population decreases as well. In addition, falling in the workforce will enter the era of slow economic growth. As a result, it will increase the social security costs.
Toward the solution, we should create the society that causes generational conflict and promotes competitive efficiency for seeking only economic value. Knowledge and experiences for reviewing and creating such a society are required.
