Survey on senior-friendly public places in the Baltic Sea region

Dear Sir or Madam,

with this questionnaire we would like to know more about your preferences and needs, and your previous use of the furniture in the public space. For example, do you often use a bench in the park, do you care about its height, or is it important for you that the furniture in the city is made of sustainable materials?

Your opinion is important to us so that public spaces can be designed more appropriately for the elderly.

The survey takes place within the framework of the EU co-financed project BaltSe@nioR 2.0 within Baltic Sea Region programme.

This questionnaire is applied identically in our international consortium with partners from Latvia, Poland, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Russia, Germany and Sweden, and collects opinions, preferences and needs across borders. This is an anonymous survey.

Thank you for answering the questions!
