Development of a training program for enhancing active ageing through not-for-profit sharing economy

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), active ageing constitutes “the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life” for people over 65. For example, community participation is a fundamental component of active ageing. There are more than a few people who feel cut off from society as they grow old after retirement, with little chance to contribute. For this reason and in order to tackle this feeling of marginalization felt not only by elder persons but also by their community who may have a misguided notion about ageing, there are opportunities that are being offered such as volunteering and sharing economy.
