JCDISI - Social Innovation Regional Forum 2020: Thematic Session 3 Smart Neighbourhood & Community: Connecting all without boundaries
Supported by the Hong Kong Green Building Council, the Social Innovation Regional Forum 2020: Thematic Session 3 Smart Neighbourhood & Community: Connecting all without boundaries would be conducted online on 6 November 2020 (Friday).
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.
About Thematic Session 3
Venturing away from home and into the public is a challenging and perhaps daunting experience to the elderly. In the revitalisation of public space, smart designs consider not just issues of accessibility and safety, but also ways to facilitate social connectivity in order to encourage active interaction in civil society within and beyond local neighbourhoods, ultimately fostering a sense of autonomy and independence for the elderly. Join the event as the speakers share about the smart community kitchens to neighbourhood redevelopments.
