Madrid, Los Mayores Primero...



Madrid, Los Mayores Primero... Is something like In Madrid, Older people First...
Cities are complex 'beings' growing and transforming constantly, in metropolis as Madrid, Paris, London, or Milan (the one with most older people living on it in Europe) the amount of elder (over 65) is growing every day (around 19% of Madrid's population) and it becomes necessary to have plans for them too...

This initiative parts from the town hall, giving tele-assistance, elder centers, day centers, transportation (like the ones in the photo), and a lot of other services...

What a better way of say "thanks" to the ones that before help Madrid to be what it became...
