Enjoy shopping in Bilbao/Bizkaia in an accessible environment

There are just a few weeks to go until the  AAL Forum 2018 in Bilbao/Bizkaia (in the north of Spain) between 24 and 26 September.

The truth is that Bilbao-Bizkaia stands out for having one of Spain’s best public transport system , which is totally accessible for people with reduced mobility.

Visit Bizkaia. Much more than the Guggenheim and Dragonstone

The forthcoming AAL Forum 2018 will be held in Bilbao, the economic and political capital of Bizkaia, in northern Spain and within easy reach of the French border. Bizkaia is the most important, both in terms of population (with 1.15 million inhabitants) and economically, of the three provinces that make up the Basque Country or Euskadi as it is known in Basque, the region’s co-official language. In recent years, Bizkaia has been consolidated as one of the best European urban tourist destinations, both for business and leisure tourism.

Be part of the AAL conversation and make a difference

Last year’s forum, held in the beautiful Portuguese city of Coimbra was alight with new faces, new optimism and the emergence of the new old. The AAL Forum is not just a platform for business-driven networking, it is a place for you to ask questions and share your ideas and opinions openly amongst AAL friends. Nurturing these thoughts can play a key role in achieving greater market success for AAL solutions, and the 2017 forum revitalised and strengthened the importance of communication in the AAL ecosystem.

Who is Jeremy Myerson?

Jeremy Myerson is in his early 60s, knocking at the door of the ‘ripe-old age’ of 65. Is he old? Is his time for living life to the fullest coming to an end?

More importantly, he is a designer who encourages design that improves quality of life. An Honorary Fellow at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing and the first-ever holder of the Helen Hamlyn Chair of Design, Myerson’s work has become an inspiration for those looking to elicit advances from the ageing demographic shift.
