Accomodating senior citizens in the Eurometropolis

The ageing of the population is indisputably one of the major challenges facing society today. Aware of this fact and confronted with growing numbers of senior citizens, the Eurometropolis Lille-Kortrijk-Tournai and the OFBS held a workshop on 23 May 2011 on accomodating senior citizens in the Eurometropolis.


Different regulations, an organisation specific to each territorial entity, best practices, opportunities for cooperation within the Eurometropolis - all these were issues discussed during the workshop. Click here for a summary of the workshop (in French and Dutch).
