The main theme is how to support inhabitancy of the elderly. In the theme we have especially the following challenges for the enrichment of inhabitancy; self-sustained inhabitancy, improvement of quality of life and so on.
Instead of merely planning layout of facilities for the elderly or planning land-use such as in the conventional city planning, we develop and propose the management system through the following approaches for the challenges.
We develop the urban management system technology that treats inhabitancy of the elderly from a comprehensive standpoint, enhances the individual quality of life that matches diversified individual situations, and at the same time enables financial burdens under control.
When the management system is developed that fuses hard and soft system, it will become “Kashiwa Model” that has an impact on many other municipalities and enables nation-wide implementation of the planning based on autonomy of the districts.
