Interactions – Session 4

Ageing and living in the city: accessibility and inclusion

10.02.2021

Housing is a crucial part of the social inclusion process. The right to adequate housing is included in all basic documents. However, there are still difficulties with the full implementation of this right, in particular it is noted that existing housing does not meet the needs of people with reduced mobility or in a situation of dependency needing home care. Homes, as places where we want to spend most of our lives, need to be accessible, affordable and suitable to provide care throughout the life cycle, especially in old age. In the fourth session of the InterActions Symposium, we will refocus housing in the context of public policy for inclusion and discuss its repositioning as a center of care throughout the life cycle.
