An interview with Thibauld Moulaert about aging in urban areas
Urban decisions are more and more often consulted with the ordinary citizens. Yet, there are groups of people with whom it is rather not counted, for example, elderly patients or caregivers. Why is this so and what is it to be done about it? We asked the sociologist who deals with the problematics of the relation between the age of the citizens and urban planning, on the long-term basis.
