EIP on AHA Commitment: Inclusive Urban and Rural Communities
Inclusive Urban and Rural Communities Commitment, on Active and Healthy Ageing, Action Group D4 – Age Friendly Environment. European Commission. This commitment is about new design paradigms that involve environments for the care and treatment of people and for sustaining healthy societies. This includes transfer of knowledge and upscaling for frailty and fall-prevention through design technologies as well as the integration of healthcare facilities via holistic approaches. The built environment comprises the physical context of most human activity. An environment incorporating in its design principles the knowledge on human physiology and perception and especially the physiology and perception of people across the lifespan, where multi-morbidities such as frailty and Alzheimer’s might occur, is beneficial for all other aspects of care and everyday life and acts as their multiplier. Partners cover the whole spectrum of stakeholder involvement: academia, central government, local authorities, regulatory bodies, start-ups, end-users and user-representatives and SMEs. They are multi and cross-disciplinary, including architecture, planning, IT technologies, transportation, healthcare, psychiatry, business administration, medical tourism and care provision. The common goal is an environment, urban and rural, inclusive for people over 55 in a physical and perception manner, in a generic but also individual way that allows people across the lifespan to be healthy, independent and active citizens that could contribute to the silver economy. Dr Evangelia Chrysikou is Coordinator for the General Domain, Age-friendly design physical environments of the Innovation Collaboration Plan D4, Action Group D4, running the UCL Commitment.
