Growing older in cities and communities

Projects and initiatives
for a more sustainable world

What is the importance of ecologically, socially and economically sustainable actions for ageing in cities and communities? Intergenerational housing projects, the community use of green spaces, sustainable engagement of older people or the participatory development of age-friendly cities - examples from all across the world give suggestions on how the topics of sustainability and ageing can be thought together and how initiatives can be developed locally. The thematic issue was prepared by the Secretariat for International Policy on Ageing of BAGSO.
