Samenvatting

The current research relates to the application of circular systems in the built environment. As of most projects related to the built environment (BE), and as it much fits in the framework of the circular economy (CE), this study will be applied for social well-being (WB) (goal no. 3 and No. 11 of the SDGs) for a particular age group. Sustainability is a delicate issue, for which sustainable construction should be the front-of-mind of any relevant company. Regarding older adults (OAs) as focusing populations, action plans must be carefully thought out; since sustainability is even more crucial for building a healthy environment for OAs. For this purpose, circular systems are promising. However, for an action plan to take effect, studying the various influential aspects, such as the support systems, locations, access to needed resources, government and community intervention, among others, are necessary. Therefore, this study aims to define and emphasise the role of parties such as investors and housing corporations to put a win-win effort in this specific field. At the same time, authorities could engage in a new or revised set of policies (the next phase). For this article, the three main components are:
1. The problems and the cruciality of the circular frameworks.
2. A short overview of the particularity of the senior citizens,
3. The significance of the circular systems for the built environment for older adults,
Finally, the leading case study focuses on the population aged 65 years and above in the Netherlands.

The current research relates to the application of circular systems in the built
environment for social well-being (WB) (goal no. 3 and No. 11 of the SDGs) for a
particular age group. Within the construction industry, sustainability is a delicate issue;
for which, sustainable construction should be the front-of-mind any relevant company.
Regarding older adults (OAs), action plans must be carefully thought out; since
sustainability is even more crucial for building a healthy environment for Older Adults.
For this purpose, circular systems are promising. The leading case study focuses on
the population aged 65 years and above in the Netherlands.
