Abstract [en]

Stockholm is growing very fast and many new housing investments are under construction outside of the city center. Suburbs are getting densifed and readjusted to modern needs as this is where many of us live today and be living in the future. At the same time our society is aging. Sweden today has 1,6 million inhabitants over 64 years old. This number is expected to raise up to 2,7 million in 2060, which means that approximately 1 in 4 people will be aged over 64*. Current urbanization rate of Sweden is oscillating around 85%, therefore the vast majority of Swedish elderly will be living in cities. We are also expected to live and work longer, changing our professions few times during our lifetime. We will have to be fast learners and flexible employees to keep up with technological development and changing job market. We will have to compete with robots and smart technologies in order to keep our positions. This equals being a “lifelong student”, even in the older age. Looking towards the future, where the demographic structure of the society will shift, it is already time to start planning our cities for an aging population, where regardless date of birth everyone can feel important and integral part of our society
