older citizen engagement
We are dedicated to ensuring older people's engagement in co-creation and urban planning! We believe that every voice matters, regardless of age, and recognise the valuable contributions that older adults bring to shaping our cities and communities.
In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of involving older people in the decision-making processes that shape the places where they live. As our population continues to age, it is essential to create inclusive environments that cater to the needs and preferences of older adults, promoting their well-being and social participation.
Co-creation refers to the collaborative process of involving diverse stakeholders in the design, implementation, and evaluation of urban development projects. By including older adults in this process, we aim to tap into their wealth of knowledge, experience, and insights. Their unique perspectives can shed light on the challenges they face, their aspirations, and the solutions they envision for creating age-friendly cities.
