Senior Citizen in Health: Global Thinking Foundation in collaboration with The Italian Association Cuore e Rianimazione Lorenzo Greco o.n.l.u.s, is realizing a project for social inclusion of older citizens, for promoting sustainable economic choses and to encourage adult people to adopt a healthy life style. Financial education assumes a central role: this project aims to explain how disadvantaged, socio-economic conditions and social exclusion and isolation can lead older people to follow unhealthy and dangerous lifestyle. Unhealthy and poor diet, related to low income and inactivity, lack of access to public and private health services, hence older people encounter illness, disability and even death. For this reasons, social inclusion and a sustainable behavior with economic consciousness, play a key role for a social inclusion and a decent life for all.
