A city listening to the voice of its people. Senior citizens policy is focused on a particular group of people: the elderly. When talking about the city we do not want to limit ourselves to people aged 60+ or 65+. We want to open ourselves up to actions that target all age groups. That is why we in Gdynia talk more and more often about inter-generational
policy engaging partners of all ages and all backgrounds.
