The latest issue of the Trendreport by the Oberösterreichische Zukunftsakademie (an internal think tank of the Provincial Government of Upper Austria) features a contribution by IFI-researcher Richard Lang (pages 31-35). The entire report deals with the aging of the baby boomer generation and the prospects of an age-friendly society. In his contribution, Richard Lang draws on the growing interest in collaborative and self-organised forms of housing that can be observed among seniors in various countries. Against this backdrop, he introduces different collaborative housing models and discusses their potential social benefits for seniors.
