Interactions – Session 5

Lisbon, a city for all ages: the role of public space

17.02.2021

In urban rehabilitation, the quality of public space is important to improve social interaction and promote active and healthy ageing. However, there is a trend in urban planning to emphasize building and the safety of older people, and social needs, such as the social participation of older people, are often given little attention. Strengthening the link between the building and security components and the social participation and citizenship components is one of the major challenges that urban planning managers, public safety services and policy makers will increasingly face in everyday urban life.

The fifth session of the InterActions Symposium will discuss issues related to the social well-being and safety of older people in public spaces. In addition, the mechanisms of urban planning that can be used to strengthen their social participation and civil rights will also be discussed.
