Aging with a Future in Mürztal


Aging with a future in Mürztal is an initiative by the Styrian Government and social insurance carriers financed by the health promotion fonds. It aims at an healthy, self-determined and positive aging.
Inspire´s contribution to the project is organising guided tours with a participative approach. The participants tell each other their experiences and stories they connect with a specific place. The tours last about 2 hours and take place in public spaces. Every tour is related to the issue of health and aging.
These tours help to make the common knowledge of people about the local region visible. Stories, memories and perceptions are documented and shared. Every participant gets first-hand current as well as historical information. Due to different routes, topics, and participants the tours are very revealing and locally colored.
The results of these tours are the basis for further measures in the project “Aging with a Future in Mürztal” and support improvements on local and regional level. The tours strengthen existing good-practices and convey that an age-appropriate municipality/town/region is a benefit for all inhabitants.
