Homes4Life partners EUROCARERS (Nadia KAMEL) and ECTP (Alexis DAVID) will attend the Open Workshop: Mandate M/420 and prEN 17210, on 5th June 2019 at the FEB, Brussels, Belgium.
This workshop will offer the opportunity of knowing the European developments under the second Phase of Mandate M/420 of the European Commission, and specifically prEN 17210 , Accessibility and usability of the built environment – Functional requirements. prEN 17210 will be the first European Standard on accessibility of the built environment.

This Open Workshop is specially aimed to the procurement community and legislators, as final users of the deliverables, to representatives of people with disabilities and of older people, and to all the relevant stakeholders involved in the building process and in the assurance of the accessibility chain, i.e. architects, engineers, facility managers, ergonomists, etc.

AGE Platform Europe is involved in the ATHLOS EU-funded project.
The aim of the project is to achieve a better understanding of ageing by identifying patterns of healthy ageing trajectories, the determinants of those patterns, the critical points in time when changes in trajectories are produced, and to propose timely public health interventions to optimise healthy ageing.
The project has launched a survey to gather opinions regarding which factors are most important for healthy ageing.
The survey can be completed in less than 5 minutes through the following link: ATHLOS Survey on Healthy Ageing Factors 5

Better Homes for Older Adults: Improving Construction, Health, Care, Design, Technology & Finance
The Agile Ageing Alliance (AAA) and Tata Steel launched Neighbourhoods of the Future 2019.
The convergence of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), potentially game-changing assistive technologies and big data analytics constitutes a golden opportunity to rethink the outlook for ageing populations, especially in terms of housing.
AAA asked expert stakeholders what, in an ideal world, our homes and neighbourhoods could look like in 10 to 20 years, and what steps must be taken now to disrupt the status quo and make their vision a reality?
Neighbourhoods of the Future 2019 captures the thoughts and predictions of a veritable `who’s who’ of distinguished experts and emerging thought leaders. In these pages, you will discover novel concepts for disrupting construction, finance, social and business models.
