Ageing & ingenuity: What is your design story?

Yanki C Lee, Sara Hyltén-Cavallius, Virginia Tassinari

Abstract


This collective design workshop aims to provoke and test new design approaches towards ageing. We are looking for design stories/narratives that show how design thinking and collaborative working can enable the world to respond differently to the challenges of ageing. Can designers change our inherent ageism through the engagement of older people in the design and delivery of services and products with them? Can we change our current strategies towards ageing, turning its potential challenges into opportunities
to engage, empower and improve the lives of the elderly? Together, we aims to build a collective design approach with ingenious older people and for our future selves.
