DESIGN. CITIES. HEALTH IN THE NEW ECONOMY
Designing for Health & Wellness in an Ageing Society. A User-centred Approach.
#Cities are in need of transformation. Facing finite resources, global ageing population, changing consumerism and lifestyle, cities are increasingly embracing quality of life, resilience and sustainable development.
Advances in arts, humanities, science, technology and medicine, together with increasing access to information, open up new horizons for (re)-designing for #health & #wellbeing for all with a #holistic approach.
#Design – in the broadest sense – presents strategies, mindset, methodologies and solutions to fuel #human-centred innovations.
#Disruptive technologies & #Big Data-driven insights unlock new possibilities for #healthcare sector and cities to stay agile, relevant and engaging in response to the changing demographics, lifestyle and values.
Designing for empathy, dignity, stakeholder and community engagement, and wellbeing is a compelling force to create better healthcare infrastructure, services and interfaces, #reimagine patient & customer experience, and realise greater efficiency.
Building #healthy cities with the #community has become an integral part of #healthcare leadership, city architecture & #urban health for cities in the 21st century and of the future.
