BIG Game will contribute to the knowledge café on “Ageing in your village” at September 22nd, 2022

Willeke van Staalduinen, AFEdemy, Academy on Age-Friendly Environments in Europe B. V.

How can you grow old in your own village? What can you do yourself, but also together as a village?

BIG helps to answer these questions by inviting people to play the educational game together and teaching them what you run into – sometimes literally – when you have a disability or dementia. For example in your own home, at the doctor’s or in the bus.

In Vledder (Drenthe), they have built their own residential care centre. During this Knowledge Café you will learn all about it.

Not only are housing and care important to the growing group of older people, but also the way the living environment is arranged. Does the living environment invite to meet and exercise? Prof. Dr. Louise Meijering (RUG) is a health geographer and researches the physical and social organization of the living environment in cities and villages.

In workshops, you will learn more about Vledder, how a Frisian municipality looks at care and living for older people in 2050, about stimulating positive health and, through a game, putting yourself in the shoes of people with reduced mobility (BIG game).

We look forward to seeing young and old on 22 September in Vledder!

Thursday 22 September 2022 from 14.00 to 16.30, De Tippe Vledder
