Ageing in cities is the central theme of this seminar. In the Netherlands the population in the main cities is relatively young. But a growing number of elderly people is ageing in the city. And we see that ‘young’ seniors form outside the city return to live a city life which has much to offer in services, culture and recreation. Who are the elderly living in cities now and in the future? Are there specific themes for people living in social housing schemes? How do we deal with social equality in resources, health and social ties. What can housing corporations do? How can they collaborate with care and welfare organizations and support initiatives of citizens?

This event is part of a triptych of events on ageing and Social Housing. All events take place at Tuesday 20 June in Rochdale office. Aim of all three meetings is to share experience and lessons learnt amongst all participants.
