Modern Aging Mini Seminar: Designing Better for Older Adults

Average life expectancy has nearly doubled in the last century. In response, designers from business, policy, and medical backgrounds around the world are rising to the challenge, hoping to embrace the opportunities that the senior market presents. Yet, a large target demographic does not necessarily mean an easily accessible one. What are some myths designers should bust through in order to better embrace the opportunities that the senior market presents?

Join us for Designing Better for Older Adults. The event will bring together leading practitioners from different disciplines in the aging space, with a special feature on Silicon Valley thought leadership from Stanford University’s Center on Longevity. You’ll get to equip yourself with the industry understanding you need to be on the leading edge of one of the world’s biggest mega-trends, connect with movers and shakers in Singapore’s longevity space, and if you’re a college student, learn about opportunities to get your ideas to the birthplace of design thinking & the famous Lean Launchpad program for further development.

Attendance is free. Light refreshments will be provided

Spaces are limited! RSVP here.
