18 Oct Aging in Germany Volume 5: Aging in Community and Region
National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) 2009
The focus of the volume is on the question as to how the location can exert an impact on aging and which conditions shrinking and growing, rural and urban, central and peripheral areas offer for quality of life and opportunities of aging. An overall perspective is developed on topics that are mutually fruitful for research on aging and research on cities and regions and constitute an intriguing interface for political activities. Spheres of activity on a local and regional level (work, education, health, participation, environment) are presented in great detail. The findings are supported by extensive graphical material and numerous examples so that a great deal of stimuli with respect to a policy sensitive to questions of aging is given.
