In their words:
‘Age-Friendly Cities and Communities’ are those that have policies, services and structures that enable older people to ‘age actively’ – that is, live in good security, enjoy good health and continue to participate fully in society.
It addressed three questions:
i. How is sense of place experienced by older adults from diverse urban neighbourhoods?
ii. What services, amenities and features are needed to create age-friendly communities that promote healthy cities and active ageing in different urban, social and cultural contexts?
iii. How can communities be designed to better integrate the sense of place needs of older adults across different urban and cultural contexts?
