The 50+generation (50-64 age group) is the largest group of "young adults" with new generational traits and needs. They are placed in the policy blind spot receiving little support, despite facing major life transition.

European countries and the United States entered the aging society before Korea. They have provided various support for the 50+generation. Now, the world is paying attention to the potential of the "50+."

The 100-year life, which has now become our reality, poses new challenges to our society. The journey to our increased life expectancy demands for new perceptions and changes in perspecitves.
