Ageing, Adaption and Accessibility: Time for the Inclusive Revolution!

Published

Modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has, in the last few years, enriched the lives of many individuals and society as a whole. With all the benefits afforded by this new-found capability, however, come challenges for an ageing population. Why do we continue to digitally disfranchise older people in the modern era, especially given that the world’s population is ageing at an unprecedented rate and there is an increasing focus on the sustainability agenda?

The Engineering Design Centre (EDC) at the University of Cambridge, in partnership with BT, produced a book of thought pieces investigating these questions. Importantly, this work was aimed at stimulating a debate based on research and practice that has been taking place in many industrial studios, government chambers and academic centres.

The book was officially launched into the public domain on the 25th of January 2013, at BT Tower in London, in the presence of eminent representatives from government, industry and academia.
