Caring communities: subjective dimensions Pt. 1

European perspectives

In promoting the role of design in healthy ageing it is essential to understand how places are experienced. How do we assess the subjective dimensions of places and the ways in which people use their locality? In three sessions an overview is provided of geographical (health) research in which the focus is on how people experience places and how these experiences influence their wellbeing. Topics addressed in these sessions include participation, access to health care and age-friendly communities. Examples are drawn from a variety of countries, including India, China, the Netherlands, Tanzania, England, Germany and Slowakia.
