BaltSe@nioR 2.00 is- as the project title indicates a project that builds upon knowledge and experience from BaltSe@nioR 1.00
The purpose of the project is- across countries around the Baltic sea to support furniture- and interior companies and public municipalities and organisations with knowledge and tools for them to make better and more senior friendly public spaces.
One of the main tasks for Lifestyle & Design Cluster is to further develop the online knowledge platform Virtual Library focusing on seniors, their needs and preferences for furniture for both own home and public spaces. You can gain free access to Virtual Library here
Furthermore we are responsible for establishing networking groups consisting of municipalities, Furniture manufacturers operating within the contract market and with seniors as final target group, elderly organizations, researchers and other actors interested in discussing needs, best practice in relation to senior friendly public spaces. Can we work with public procurement in order to make them focus on both sustainability and more senior friendly furniture and interior. We are also going to work with social business models, and visiting some of the best practice public seniorfriendly spaces.
There will also be established a international network of actors across the Baltic Sea. The networking groups will take their starting point in the needs of the participants.

BaltSe@nioR 2.00 runs from January 2019 to September 20121 and is supported by The European Union’s Regional Development Fund and is a project under the Program Interreg Baltic Sea.
The 10th June 2020, Circular Economy expert, Henrik Nørgaard Sørensen, Lifestyle & Design Cluster, held a webinar concerning United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in BaltSe@nioR 2.0.
The webinar was focused on the transition from linear to circular economy, and the importance of thinking differently about the way we use the resources.
The furniture and textile industries are some of the biggest consumers of raw materials. Furthermore companies in these industries aren’t focusing on the afterlife of the produced products.
There is a need for a changed mindset, and a need for a common language across the world , which is one of the reasons behind the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
In 2015 all leaders of the world agreed to the worlds most important plan. They agreed to United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals for a sustainable future. The 17 SDGs provide a unique opportunity for companies, public institutions, NGOs and other organizations to think differently and communicate about how they are a part of the solution for a better future. They are part of the solution and not of the problem.
