Announcing the Active Seniors' Academy*Open Seminars

March 12, 2004

The Japan Research Institute, Ltd. (head office: 16 Ichibancho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Shunichi Okuyama; hereafter "JRI") is honored to present "JRI Active Seniors' Academy Open Seminar," a community service project co-sponsored by Chiyoda Ward (1-6-11 Kudanminami, Chiyoda-ku; ward mayor: Masami Ishikawa). Organized for seniors aged 50 and above who are residing or working in Chiyoda-ku, the program is committed to providing significant information to members of the mature age group who, having made their mark in their respective fields, are now seeking quality senior living.

*An active senior is defined as a new-generation senior who rejects the notion of retirement age as retirement from life, is enthusiastic about work and hobbies, and is actively involved in the society. An active senior believes in lifetime productivity and possesses a wealth of experience and superior value judgment.

1. About the Seminar

As communities face a number of challenges in the era of falling birth rate and aging population, active seniors are being looked upon as important players because of their wealth of social and life experiences and availability in terms of time. Through "JRI Active Seniors' Academy Open Seminar," we will provide information that will enhance the interest of active seniors in community activities, thereby making them become fully involved in community problem-solving. Starting in April, a total of twelve sessions will be held once a month for a period of one year. The sessions will cover topics of direct concern to all participants, such as the decrease in birth rate and the aging of the population, the environment, the stimulation of the local economy, and disaster prevention.
