Excellent living environments

– How do we create healthy, age-friendly and sustainable living environments?

We need to solve the challenges coming from a growing elderly population and pressure on the healthcare and social care systems across Europe. One way to do that is by looking at our living environments and making sure to create buildings and homes that act as a part of the solution to the before mentioned challenge.

Part of the solution could be living environments with a high level of adaptability; thus people can stay in their own homes for a longer period in their senior years. Another contribution to the solution is starting to integrate welfare and health technologies in new houses and buildings or add them to already existing buildings. A third way our living environments can support health and age-friendliness is by enhancing the quality of life, supporting social life, and limit loneliness.

In this afternoon program at WHINN, we will explore different perspectives of excellent living environments.

This event is in English.
