What we're about
We want to bring together designers that care about products and websites that work for seniors, and seniors that think today's products and websites don't work well for them. And get some dialog going that will lead to better understanding of the unmet needs of this large cohort of consumers (seniors), and ultimately to products and services that work better.
This Meetup group is working closely with a similar Meetup group based in San Francisco. We plan to share learnings and compare what we discover. We think this sort of global interaction will be fun and illuminating.
Both this Meetup, and the San Francisco Senior-focused Design Meetup on which we are modeled, are part of the Longevity Collective (http://www.techenhancedlife.com/content/longevity-collective), a group of Citizen Observers, Evaluators and Makers working together to improve the future of aging.
