The first edition of the TV programme “Sem Censura” in 2018, a traditional talk show of TV Brasil, counted on the participation of our technical director Ina Voelcker.
She was invited to speak about age-friendly cities, ageing and accessibility. Time being too short to extensively explain the project, she highlighted the importance of the bottom-up approach: giving the voice to older citizens who can identify barriers, strenghts and suggestions of how to turn a city more age-friendly. In her view, this is one of the reasons why the methodology works in any setting: huge metropolitan areas like New York and small towns in rural areas like Veranópolis.
The programme, moderated by Vera Barroso, also counted on the participation of the actor Raymundo de Souza, acting in “Um casamento feliz”, the medical doctor Márcio Marinho who is an expert in chemical dependency and author of a book on prevention aimed at adolescents, and Eder Fernandes, who teaches sociology and law at the Federal University Fluminense (UFF) and coordinates a research group on “sexuality, right and democracy”.
The full programme was transmitted live on TV and via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/semcensuratv/videos/1507204886066090/
