Zentrum für Generationen und Barrierefreiheit (ZGB, Centre for Generations and Accessibility)
The Centre for
Generations and Accessibility (ZGB) was founded in 1999 as an association
in response to the demographic challenges ahead. The association
offers innovative geragogic and awareness raising seminars and
consultant services. The aim is to contribute to a “society for all
ages”. The centre supports older people and aims to enable an
independent life for them.
One of the fields of activities is mobility of senior citizens.
Mobility counts a lot more than only moving from one place to
another. It stands for participating in life, to be independent and
to have social contact. But often technical novelties and increasing
traffic volumes accompanied by biological effects of ageing frighten
older people or create a feeling of discomfort. ZGB offers amongst
others mobility trainings for older people which offer the
opportunity to talk about fears, to learn safe usage of the bus and
provides many other useful tips and motivations for senior bus
users. ZGB works closely with Salzburg AG in addressing older
people’s needs in public transport.

Trainings etc. on www.zgb.at.
