Living longer: the ageing population

Have a look at a great BBC piece on global ageing. Facts and some interesting interviews relating to the huge social and economic implications of the ageing population.

By 2040, the world's population aged 60 and over will more than treble to two billion people.

In the next 30 years, for the first time in human history, there will be more people on the planet who are over 60 than those under the age of 15.
