The aim of this session is to highlight various practical ways in which Alzheimer’s disease prevention can be approached through intercultural communication from within mainstream foreign language education. In this session, Alzheimer’s disease prevention will be explored through Houghton’s FURYU (風流) Educational Program (FEP), which is currently under development in the Faculty of Art and Regional Design at Saga University. Houghton’s research has traversed through intercultural dialogue and (post) native speakerism through to art (performing arts/dance) and regional design (fitness). These will be reviewed from various standpoints related to lifestyle management including heritage management, intercultural dialogue, health and fitness, technology, art generation and social business.
