Towards the All-Age-Friendly City

As identified on their website, the Future Cities Catapult, identified as "a global centre of excellence on urban innovation", has been working on a key project with a new report released, entitled "Towards the All-Age-Friendly City". According to the Future Cities Catapult, this report finds that:

 

"inter-generational trust, built through frequent encounters and better-designed housing and transport is key to an all-age-friendly city. The report depicts possible ideas for improving cities, from digital aids for encouraging accidental encounters between generations, to sentiment mapping and modular housing for intergenerational relationships. It explores how shared service hubs could bring generations together, as well as skill-based currencies and digital platforms that could enable a shift from generations co-habiting in public space to true sharing"
