Abstract

Based on investigations of life support networks and the sustainability of elderly people’s lifestyles, on-going surveys are being conducted on the lives of elderly people living on islands Since there is a high probability for elderly people on islands to become shopping refugees, the research focused on the civic quality of the elderly as consumers. The study investigated the possibility of building a consumer citizenship society on islands through self-help, public assistance, and mutual cooperation.
