The renovation of this building is a task for the local policy and opens a future market for the construction industry! This seminar teaches the basics of planning and execution, the funding opportunities for the public sector, as well as counseling skills for a fair old and thus barrier-free building. The seminar included an excursion to various public buildings for "assisted living" and a new public retirement home.
In the seminar, the demographic change was explained and the various alternative models of living for older people were presented. In this context, the Front Runner Project "Social house for the eldery of the 2000s" in Italy was discussed. This project was planned especially for a mix of old and young people and there stand also the affordable and sustainable living in the foreground. Furthermore, the participants were given opportunity to get the experience of the problems of a wheelchair user on a specific course.
