Homes4Life webinar on the Certification Scheme, 9 July

Considering the need for quality and resilient housing that can adapt with people’s evolving needs when they age, the Homes4Life project intends to promote an age-friendly approach. Addressing this challenge, a first version of a certification scheme has been developed and is being tested in different pilot sites in Europe. Being innovative in its approach and process, the Homes4Life certification scheme takes into account a large array of indicators (e.g. social, economic, architectural) and helps raising the awareness of stakeholders to implement better environments for all.

Homes4Life partners will present this certification scheme during a webinar and give the opportunity to the audience to provide their views on the certification’s strengths and limits:
