The Mini Marathon was dedicated to the International Day of Older Persons. It’s key goal is to promote active and healthy aging.
Topic relevance:
Increased lifespan, reduced morbidity, disease and birth rates have led to population aging, as observed in all the EU countries and Belarus.
Thus, in 2013, the ratio of EU residents over 65 years old was 18.2% , with the highest rates in Italy (21.4%) and Germany (21.4%), and the lowest – in Ireland (12.6%). By the year 2050, the ratio of Europeans over 65 years of age is expected to reach 30% of the entire EU population, which will entail a major growth of the share of people over 80 years of age. As of the end of 2013, the ratio of 65+ people in Belarus amounted to 13.8%, and it is forecast to grow up to 26.7% by 2050.
