Homes4Life project organises a webinar to discuss & improve its Certification Scheme

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 living environments for all.

The next webinar proposed by the Homes4Life project’s Partners will aim at reminding the scope of the Certification, where it currently stands and what the next steps are. Above all, the webinar will be as interactive as possible, so that we can collect all the opinions and advice of the audience, in order to improve the Certification. Discussions will be also based on the feedback from the pilot sites.

Time & date of the webinar: Thursday, November 5, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM (CEST)
