Published on 13 Jul 2018
As Singapore grapples with an ageing population, innovative solutions can help our seniors lead a more fulfilling life. Together with Australia's University of Canberra and Monash University, SDN and SHS organised an international design workshop themed Inspired by Singapore: Design for Healthy Ageing 2018.
More than 100 tertiary students from Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore interviewed residents in elder care centres and community hospitals across Singapore to understand their needs. They subsequently came up with some interesting solutions for healthy ageing. Their works can be viewed at an exhibition at the National Design Centre till July 17.
