URBANAGE is a 3-year H2020 European initiative focused on improving the comfort of older citizens. The project started in 2021. Based on a thorough understanding of users’ needs, the ecosystem (tools, and cocreation) will be validated by piloting use-cases in three local planning systems in Europe (Helsinki, Santander, and Flanders).
Two pilot cases were designed for Flanders as a result of 3 cocreation workshops.
- Based on comfort-indicators, a green comfort index is determined and visualised on a map. This information helps citizens find comfortable spots in the city and allows planners and policymakers to increase green comfort (or improve accessibility) based on inclusive, evidence-based decisions.
- By mapping the distribution of older people with reduced mobility, policymakers can prioritise city upgrades to improve comfort.
On this webpage, we bundle use cases, demonstrating the outcome of this project.
