On 25 April, Nagusi Intelligence Center, in collaboration with Bilbao Ekintza, is holding a new thematic talk, entitled: “Inclusive urban planning and older people”. The talk will take place in Bilbao, in the Ensanche Building.

Inclusive urban planning focuses on designing cities that are accessible and welcoming for everyone, including older people. With an ageing population, it is crucial to consider the specific needs of this demographic when it comes to urban design.

We will approach this topic from three perspectives: the expert perspective, provided by the architect Jone Belausteguigoitia who specialises in urban planning, co-founder of Lur Studio; the public perspective, provided by the Mobility and Sustainability Department of Bilbao City Council; and the third perspective, from Aitor Pina, founder of Movinte (movilidad integral), who will propose solutions from an entrepreneurial standpoint.

After the coffee break, as always, we will have a working session with the attendees.

We look forward to seeing you!
