Future cities will be characterized by the growing presence of long-lived citizens and a high rate of automation in traffic dynamics. How to foster the social inclusion and active ageing of the elderly in forthcoming urban scenarios?
To this end, LONGEVICITY has the objective to study walkability and pedestrian mobility in the City of Milan (Italy), considering the specific needs of the senior citizens.
LONGEVICITY is funded by Fondazione Cariplo within the Call Scientific Research 2017 “Aging and social research: people, places and relations”, along the period between April 2018 and December 2020 [Grant No.2017-0938].
towards future cities
The cities of the future will be characterized by the need to design age-friendly transportation infrastructures and mobility services. LONGEVICITY is based on a methodological interplay between social research and innovative technologies to study the increasing role that autonomous vehicles will have on walkability and age-driven pedestrian mobility.
SOCIAL INCLUSION AND ACTIVE AGEING
LONGEVICITY has the objective to support the social inclusion and active ageing of the long-lived citizens by fostering their autonomous mobility. The project is aimed at assessing and enhancing the level of walkability of the City of Milan (level of accessibility, comfort and safety), considering the needs and perceptions of the elderly with respect to mobility infrastructures and services.
