Actively engaging older people as actors in urban planning

In 2030, 1 billion people across the globe will be 65 years or older with the majority living in cities.

In this video from URBANAGE's wokshop at the EWRC 2021, viewers will learn from the experiences of Helsinki, Santander and Flanders about how to lower barriers to older citizen engagement; effective co-design ingredients; and how to use Digital Twin technology to leverage citizens' needs.
