About the project
We all know that people live longer and extend their lives as citizens, community members, and consumers in different domains. What are the implications for city planners and developers, social and health-care providers, public institutions and private companies?
People adapt to physical and physiological ageing effect as they grow old, but do cities and organisations, be they public institutions or private companies, understand these effects and have reflected on their implications in all aspects?
The overall objective of the Age-friendly Environments Activists project is to support and train older adults who want to:
– promote and foster age-friendly environments in their cities and communities and
– to influence municipal agencies in their decision making
, so that the infrastructures and services are adapted to the diverse capacities, realities, needs and preferences of all residents of all ages.
