Baby Boomer Trends That Could Impact You | Article - 0 views

  • Older Baby Boomers slated for retirement could create many new future job openings - if they decide to leave the job market at age 65. But that's a big "if." Several trends are now pointing toward delayed retirement due to increased personal expenses, better health and the desire to stay working - at least part-time - beyond age 65. For whatever reason, Baby Boomers are staying in the workforce longer than previous generations.
  • The BLS also predicts that the arts, entertainment, and recreation industry is expected to grow by 15 percent by 2018, with most of the growth in the amusement, gambling, and recreation sector.
  • Job growth is projected to stem partially from retired Baby Boomers who have more leisure time, more disposable income and more concern with being physically fit than the generations before them - all driving a need for more recreational programs.

Museums and the ageing population - LEM Project - 0 views

  • Today, there are many individual examples of museums and other heritage learning institutions providing learning activities for senior citizens. But as of yet, there has not been any aggregate analysis on how cultural heritage institutions in Europe deal with these issues. The research group on museums and the ageing population will be dedicated to find good examples, analyse them and spread the results through the LEM-network to the inspiration of others. The group will start by creating an overview of experience: what has been done and what has been fruitful (and perhaps not so fruitful) in the different national contexts. The overview will be based on ideas, examples, practices etc, collected by the research group members respectively.

A museum needs a series of access points around the various exhibits, for example, so students can really ‘visit’ the museum instead of watching a series of presentations. ‘In some museums that’s easy because there are high ceilings to fix the access points, in others it’s quite a challenge,’ explains Sotiriou …
