The world is facing a growing number of complex social challenges right now - we are ageing whilst living further and further apart from our loved ones, socio-economic disparities are leaving the most vulnerable more exposed and at risk, loneliness is an increasing phenomenon for all generations even though we are more connected than ever. With lifestyle diseases booming the world over, our health and care no longer lies only in the hands of care professionals but in our hands too…
Meanwhile, life expectancy has been steadily increasing for decades, and yet we continue to structure our lives the way our parents or grandparents did. Did you know 50% of babies born in 2007 are predicted to live for an average of 104 years?
In light of this context we face important questions…
• How might we redesign our personal, organisational and social structures in front of a 100-year life?
• How can we ensure that Care lies at the heart of this Social Revolution?
Lekshmy Parameswaran (The Care Lab) & Alfons Cornella (Institute of Next) will debate about the responsibility of Design and Innovation to address the current and future challenges in the world of Care.
