Innovation et participation dans une politique municipale des vieillissements ? La mise en œuvre du programme Villes Amies des Aînés (VADA) à Brest

Abstract : With the lengthening of life expectancy and arrival at retirement age of the large baby boomer’s generations, supporting elderly populations has become a truly primordial stake of public policies. In such context, the Age-friendly Cities program initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO), is an attempt to address the challenge of true inclusion of elderly people in society. It encourages active ageing and puts forward the question of the adaptation of urban environment (built and social). In this perspective, involving the elderly is essential to identify necessary adaptations for the development of a society for people of all ages. In 2016, in the continuity of a policy stance centred on prevention called "ageing well", the city of Brest joined the WHO program. It has thus committed to improving the quality of life for elderly people, by reinforcing its action on the adaptation of the city, developing inclusive policies and setting up a participative governance model. This research work offers an analysis of the conditions of emergence of the Brest municipality’s endorsement of the Age-friendly Cities program. It also dwells on the issue of the implementation of an ambitious, transverse and participative approach in the context of budget constraints and sectoral organization of public action.
