In recent years a new and serious social problem has emerged: the mistreatment of the elderly. However, it is necessary to warn that it is not so much a new phenomenon but the way out of its invisibility. Indeed, more and more cases of ill-treatment of long-term or elderly people emerge to the surface and this happens in a wide range of modalities, from neglect and abandonment to physical violence or economic plunder.
This is how, from the basic social services, the mental health and health devices or the state security forces and the prosecutor’s office, situations in which the elderly are subject to theft, fraud, beatings, threats or insults are detected. And all this happens without, so far, public administrations have taken action on the matter in a determined way through the implementation of legal, social or health measures.
Within this framework, an initiative has emerged from professionals linked to the Regional Council of Baix Llobregat. This initiative is the SEAP, Servei Especialitzat d’Atenció les les Persones Grans. This service is interdisciplinary in nature (social, legal and health) and has managed to build a discourse and a methodology that is facilitating the actions of the Prosecutor and the world of the judiciary.
This day will focus on the presentation of the SEAP, its methodology and a brief memory of the cases in which it has intervened. There will also be the participation of professionals from other disciplines to debate and critically reflect on this social scourge that is the mistreatment of the elderly.

The world in a changing environment: from digital transformation to climate emergency or commercial warfare
Speaker: José Manuel González-Páramo, Executive Director, BBVA
Moderator: Prof. Pedro Videla, Economy, IESE
The world is constantly evolving and changes are happening at a dizzying pace. We are in the fourth industrial revolution, the digital transformation, which is modifying the way in which we relate to people, business models, and ultimately the way in which value is created. Additionally, citizens face challenges such as environmental degradation and climate change, demographic transition, migration and inequalities.
Together with these structural changes, the commercial war, Brexit and the increasingly limited capacity of central banks to relaunch the economy raise doubts about the ability of European governments to ensure inclusive and sustainable growth over the time.
Given this situation it is necessary to make a calm reflection on the current situation and the different future scenarios that we will face in the coming months and years.
