Longevity has two-fold implications for urban development. First, cities need to accommodate their structures, and housing, transport, and service systems to an increasing share of older adults that reside, work, consume, and move about in an urban environment. Second, cities need to cater for the long lives that individuals live in the urban environment, and ensure, that the structures flexibly respond to the changing needs and preferences across the life course.
AGEING CITY seminar circles these topical questions. The seminar consists of two half-day long parts. The first seminar day will be held in Finnish and second in English. You are welcome to participate either the whole seminar or just one day. The seminar is free of charge. Both seminar days will be arranged F2F in G Livelab Tampere (Puutarhakatu 1, 33100 Tampere).
On Monday May 16th at 12-16.30 the focus is on developing visions for sustainable aging city as a joined effort of stakeholders, developers, service providers and researchers. This part of the seminar will be held in Finnish. Programme:
