Norrbotten is facing a demographic challenge. The average age in the county is now significantly higher than the national average and more people are expected to retire in the next ten years. An aging and simultaneously shrinking population poses major challenges in society and the labor market.
Norrbotten will miss labor! Employment Service's projections of population figures in Norrbotten shows that if you compare the number of who can retire at age 65 with the 19-year-olds that can enter the labor market, we will have 19,000 (!) people missing by the year of 2025. In seven of Norrbottens fourteen communes the newly added 19-year-olds will not even be enough to fill the needs of the public sector.
We need the elderly! The elderly are a large and important resource in the regions labor market. All human resources will be needed – for example people in the age of 60-65 who wants to work longer, perhaps on their own terms. We need to find new models and test new methods for managing generational change in Norrbotten.

With the goal... - That more people in the age group starting up in business - Creating new models for mentoring - Contributing to finding new ways and terms of employment - Finding new markets for their skills - Finding ways how to support the elderly - To find 60-plus' own desire to develop - To develop methods for individuals 60-plus that can support businesses and entrepreneurs Creating an existing and ongoing activitie for the target group at Sunderby Folkhögskola
