first tues­day in Feb­ru­ary: Activating

Online-Ver­anstal­tung über Go-To-Meeting
2. February 2021
10:00 – 11:00

Peo­ple in need of care and car­ers often do not have access to the best ideas from com­pa­nies, start-ups and the design indus­try. The ini­tia­tive first tues­day wants to cre­ate a plat­form for bet­ter net­work­ing of care, start-ups and design com­pe­tence, so that inno­va­tions in the areas of care and elder­ly care are anchored in the long term.

At the online meet­ing on Tues­day, Feb­ru­ary 2 from 10:00 — 11:00 a.m., the top­ic of acti­vat­ing and cre­at­ing encoun­ters between gen­er­a­tions will be addressed.

“If the social care is right, it is not only a fig­ure­head for the facil­i­ty. It is a deci­sive influ­enc­ing fac­tor on the qual­i­ty of life of res­i­dents in inpa­tient care facil­i­ties. Com­mit­ted care­givers make all the dif­fer­ence!” says Thordis Gooßes, edi­tor in the pub­lish­ing divi­sion for elder­ly care at Vin­centz Net­work. There, she has coor­di­nat­ed the trade mag­a­zine “Acti­vate — The Mag­a­zine for Social Care” since 2015.

A design impulse for the acti­va­tion and encounter of young and old peo­ple comes from inte­ri­or design­er Lau­ra Stael­berg. As part of her master’s the­sis at the Acad­e­my of Fine Arts in Munich, she designed a meet­ing place where lone­ly peo­ple of all ages can meet and become active togeth­er to escape loneliness.

On every first tues­day of the month, stake­hold­ers from the care sec­tor meet dig­i­tal­ly with com­pa­nies, start-ups and the design­ers to devel­op prac­ti­cal solu­tions. Each event presents two inno­va­tors of needs and offers. Results will be shown in 2021 at the events Munich Cre­ative Busi­ness Week (MCBW) in Munich and the Altenpflege-Messe in Nuremberg.

The series is being held in coop­er­a­tion with the C&S Insti­tute, the Insti­tute for Uni­ver­sal Design and the Vin­centz Network.
