Synergies

To ensure the sustainability of the GreenerAge project and maximize the utilization, reusability, and enhancement of its outcomes in the future, it is crucial to establish synergies and connections with other similar projects.

OneAquaHealth

OneAquaHealth

OneAquaHealth is a Research and Innovation Action funded by the EU under Horizon Europe. Coordinated by the University of Coimbra, a consortium of 13 partners investigates the interconnection of ecosystem and human health and will identify early warning indicators to enhance environmental monitoring. By filling knowledge gaps and by adopting the One Digital Health (ODH) principles, policy instruments for the management of urban aquatic sites can be improved substantially. The project will develop AI-assisted digital tools – an Environmental Surveillance System, a Decision & Support System and a CitizenScience App to raise awareness and to engage all relevant stakeholders to jointly achieve thriving ecosystems and healthier communities for the future.

AFECO

AFECO

The AFECO project (Erasmus+ 2022-2025, coordinator AFEdemy) aims to promote older adults’ skills and competences that allow them to analyse and use affordable age-friendly and eco-friendly principles in their physical environment (at home or in the neighbourhood). Age-friendly and eco-friendly principles should work complementarily and supportively to create the right conditions for social inclusion, active ageing and ageing in place, through an environmentally responsible way of living.
The main objective of AFECO is to develop a well-structured and open e-learning platform aiming to raise awareness and educate older people, (in)formal caregivers and social workers. Complemented with a baseline study, a curriculum and a validation handbook, the project seeks to empower people to make informed, healthier, and greener choices in their own living environments.
NET4Age-Friendly

NET4Age-Friendly

The COST Action International Interdisciplinary Network on Smart Healthy Age-friendly Environments | NET4Age-Friendly seeks to promote social inclusion, independent living and active and healthy living in society, through the establishment of an international and interdisciplinary network of researchers and stakeholders from all sectors. The main approach of this COST Action is the establishment of local or regional ecosystems in each country involved, to work on health and well-being in an age-friendly digital world. These ecosystems consist of citizens, public authorities, businesses/NGOs and researchers and they are well represented in the Action which currently gathers a network of around 700 people from 50 countries.

SIRENE is an Horizon Europe project that aims to support the growth of social innovation ecosystems delivering eco-friendly and sustainable community-based services for SHAFE (Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments) implementation in Europe, by providing a workable framework for investment and the broad adoption of high-quality smart living solutions, combining the housing sector and ICT infrastructure. The desired impact of the SIRENE proposal is to improve the wellbeing and housing conditions of the European population by empowering social and private entrepreneurs.

SHAFE

SHAFE

Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE) focus on the narrative, debate, disclosure and knowledge translation of solutions to optimize the physical and social environments of individuals in a concerted manner. From the early concept, several projects have been implementing SHAFE in the field but a broader coordination is needed to ensure wider coverage, and this is why the SHAFE Foundation was born: to research, develop, network and promote the implementation of SHAFE in Europe and in other regions of the world.
TRIO

TRIO

The TRIO project is an Erasmus+ project with the goal of establishing a cohesive upskilling pathway to enhance the health, digital, and data literacy of adults of all ages. It aims to promote adult education by fostering digital readiness, resilience, and capacity-building. From 2022 to 2024, TRIO is implementing a modular approach, encompassing a manual, a curriculum, and a comprehensive toolkit for adult educators. This approach is supported by a digital learning platform designed to adapt to the evolving needs of users, technology, and context. Additionally, TRIO will produce a Green Paper to be presented to policymakers and relevant European initiatives.

Future Senior Housin (TULE-project)

Future Senior Housin (TULE-project)

Funded by ARA (Ministry of Housing Finance) and over 20 municipalities and housing organisations, lead by Core-lab. The aim is to develop age-friendly housing models through co-creation of new concepts with key stakeholders and understanding their economic and well-being implications. ASUTUT contribute to the mapping of current (inter)national best practices and co-creation of new concepts and scenarios. [UN SDGs: 3, 10, 11, 17]
Kotiluontoon / home to nature

Kotiluontoon / home to nature

Home is a multidimensional place that is formed by the interaction of many spatial, functional, temporal and social factors. But the home is not limited to the walls of the apartment, and extends into the home neighborhood, i.e. the nearby living environment. Funded by Western Finland Public Benefit Housing Foundation, this study examines aging residents’ experiences (older adults 65+) of the surrounding urban nature, the meaning of these experiences for their perceived well-being and the connections leading from the apartment to the urban nature with a multidisciplinary research group (architecture and gerontology).
