Be a happy couple in the old age

[English version below]

Agar bisa menjadi lansia yang bahagia, menurut Freud yang dibutuhkan adalah to love well and to work well. Berbicara mengenai to love well, penelitian yang dilakukan oleh Robert Atchley dan Sheila Miller, menghasilkan kesimpulan bahwa pasangan selayaknya memiliki kesamaan nilai, minat dan tujuan hidup. Suami dan isteri jadi pada mirip, yang satu demen bersepeda, yang lainnya tak kurang sukanya. Yang satu senang berenang, yang lain ikut nyemplung. Ya, kegiatan dan cita-cita hidup mereka banyak yang identik, sekitar 80%-an. Kata kedua periset itu, mereka saling menerima pasangannya, berbakti, setia ke satu sama lain, menikmati hidup bersama. (dikutip dari tulisan Jusni Hilwan, "Menjadi Lansia yang Hepi")



Jika tertarik memperoleh informasi yang lebih jauh mengenai Lansia dan Pekerjaan (salah satu unsur agar bisa happy selain saling mencintai), bisa menghadiri acara International Symposium on Ageing and Work Ability 2009. Simposium ini akan diadakan di Kampus Universitas Indonesia Depok, Jawa Barat. Detil list acara dan pendaftaran, bisa mengklik: http://tinyurl.com/y8jmnk3 .

International Symposium on Ageing and Work Ability 2009

The first half of the 21st century will be a crucial period for facing population ageing. In Asia and the Pacific, the number of older people is growing rapidly, from 410 million in 2007 to about 733 million in 2025, and to an expected 1.3 billion in 2050.
In terms of percentages, the older people will constitute about 15 per cent of the total population in 2025 and up to nearly 25 percent by 2050, from over 10 percent now. Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world, and currently has the tenth largest population of elderly. In 2020, its number of older people will steadily increase to 28.8 million (11% of total population)
while the under five population will gradually decrease in number.

Although there are many issues relating to ageing in general, the particular area of ageing and work is still relatively new. Yet, this issue has been discussed in The 17th Congress of International Association of Gerontology held in Vancouver in 2001.

Furthermore, in September 2001, there was an International Conference on Aging and Work which was conducted in Hanoi. This conference followed up with a symposium on the Promotion of Work Ability towards Productive Aging conducted in Vietnam 22 – 24 October 2007. Selected papers from this symposium have been published by Kumashiro, 2009. All aspects of
Occupational Gerontology are relevant to research into elderly workers/ageing in the workplace. These issues should thus be discussed in Indonesia, as about 50% of Indonesian elderly are still active in the workplace and contribute to the national economy.
Based on the above mentioned background, we plan to conduct a Symposium on Ageing and Work Ability in Indonesia. This symposium will be coordinated by Universitas Indonesia.,the National Commission for Older Persons Indonesia and ACAP (Active Ageing Consortium Asia Pacific) . This symposium will also be conducted in line with the International Day of Older Persons on every October 1st.
