Local planning attitudes: Comparative content analysis of municipal director plans of shrinking Portuguese cities

and beyond that in planning cultures (as well as testing and evaluating land management, planning governance and policy options for shrinking cities or regions) is considered an important research question to be pursued ( Pallagst, 2010 ; Foster, 2010 ). Moreover, against the background of a growth-oriented culture, cities confronted with population decrease often refuse to accept shrinkage and its “hidden” opportunities ( Röschlau, 2013 ; Sousa and Pinho, 2015 ; Simon and Mikešová, 2014). Simon and Mikešová (2014) argue that demographic change such as

The “Comprehensive village renewal programme in Burgenland” as a means a strengthening the social capital in rural areas

Abstract

In this paper, the results of the study of the comprehensive village renewal programme in Burgenland are considered in the light of the concept of social capital. Changes to the social structures and demographic changes have a strong impact on the formation of social capital in the villages and are therefore a central challenge facing the policies of the municipalities. An objective in the further development of the programme for comprehensive village renewal is to strengthen the local and regional social capital. The implementation of participative village renewal processes has the potential for increasing social capital in the villages, but certain conditions need to be in place for this. The paper analyses and discusses how the programme has contributed to date to the formation of social capital, what opportunities the municipalities have and what instruments they will need in future to build up the social capital that is crucial to sustainable village development.

Changing Social Structure in Europe calls for Tailor-made, Barrier-free Living and new Interior Design

Abstract

Europe is experiencing a demographic change, resulting in a change in social structure. People are living longer and birth rates are declining. This changing structure in Europe poses special challenges for housing designers and builders. A new approach in the design of real estate must be created and implemented that caters for the future needs of the occupants of the living space in all phases and allows residents to remain self-sufficient in their "home" for as long as possible. In the earliest stages of design, the typical requirements for each phase of life of future, potential residents must already be considered. This is especially true for people with special protection needs, such as those with visual or hearing impairments.
