About the Forum
Population ageing and building stock ageing are usually tackled as two separate subjects, and each has already received much attention. However, the combined impact of these processes of ageing, i.e. "Double Ageing", is a much more complex issue to address. The Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation (JCDISI) advocates for an integrated, people-centric "Double Smart" approach which leverages smart aging and smart city efforts holistically in order to enhance the sustainability, liveability and resilience of cities.
Social Innovation Regional Forum (SIRF) 2020, a virtual event comprised of a series of thematic sessions, one forum and an online exhibition taking place from October to December. Join academics, industry leaders, and stakeholders from Hong Kong, Asia Pacific and beyond in examining the challenges of double ageing and addressing them by offering proposals and strategies through social innovation.
