European cities are facing several challenges when it comes to their senior citizens. While this population group is growing, it is key to enable and empower them to move around the city independently and sustainably.

This upcoming practitioner’s webinar from CIVITAS ECCENTRIC (link is external) brings you two experiences from different cities who have rolled out sustainable urban mobility projects that target the elderly and youth, that bring generations together, and that promote self-determined mobility and sustainability.

Learn from Lea Wiser from Munich on how to combine sustainable mobility, climate protection and internet education for seniors with the help from high school students.

Hear from Pilar Castro from Madrid on how to empower senior citizens and teenagers to take matters into their own hands and move around sustainably and independently.

During the webinar, you will learn about:

  • Benefits of intergenerational projects
  • First-hand experience implementing the projects in Munich and Madrid
  • How to bring together schools, teenagers, and the elderly  
  • The importance of autonomous mobility for the elderly
  • How different learning modules were structured and conducted in Munich, including the use of an "age suit“ when conducting workshops
  • How to adapt Munich’s and Madrid’s programmes to different needs
  • Drivers and barriers of implementing programmes
