Details

In this hands on workshop, we will work together to create our future worlds. What will your future self want and need? We will identify what accessibility means in relation to our world today and what that might look like in the future. You will work in groups to imagine where technology and innovation can improve your future world. In the U.S., people 65 and older make up about 14% of the population, a number expected to double by 2060. Let’s design for our future selves!
