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.
