New Ways of Senior Life in Madrid

The student in charge, will develop a summary of the Final Degree works, which have addressed the theme of the lifestyle, activities and public space of seniors in the city of Madrid. Not only being a learning experience for the person who realizes it. But it will help to understand this subject to a large group of people through its publication on the website of the university.

In Madrid the aging population is very high, and with a tendency to increase in the coming years, which is why it is necessary to address new responses. Not just because of the increasing population but due to the the many challenges that are faced by this group in the neighborhoods of the consolidated city.

In the ebook, each contribution will provide an overview of the problem, frame actions and good practices from other European contexts, and conclude by proposing an adaptation or transformation of the regulations specific to the case of Madrid.
