The silver economy in regional development in light of the concept of human-centred-development

Grażyna Krzyminiewska


The objective of the article is to indicate the possibilities and ways of utilising the silver economy in regional development. The presented thesis draws attention to the basis for the development of the senior economy resulting from the ageing of the population in many countries, including Poland and the Wielkopolskie Region. The basic assumption made here, is that the silver economy is also based on the important idea of social development – the concept of human-centred development, in which a humanistic, subjective approach is introduced to development strategies. The article points to the possibilities of the silver economy, and the broad benefits that can be obtained by entrepreneurs, recipients-beneficiaries, as well as society as a whole. The contents contained in the article fall within the category of economic and social analysis, utilise the achievements of sociological and economic studies, and were based both on existing sources and the results of original research. The method of descriptive analysis was used in the presentation of these issues.
