Hey Bikash,

Thanks for your comments and great to hear that you like the concept! We came to this solution by working with groups of older people who live in cities, understanding that the most urgent need is in low income and insecure communities, and seeing the potential to bring other contributors - students, academics, professionals - from urban design backgrounds, together with community members to address these issues. We were inspired partly by similar work in a neighbourhood of Hong Kong where older people worked with architects to redevelop a local park in a way that addressed their most pressing needs. In relation to your question about prosperity, we aim to work in low income communities and believe strongly that inclusive, peaceful and accessible neighbourhoods bring prosperity to the entire community by strengthening the social connections and opportunities that residents rely upon. To answer your final question, we will target older people living in low income and insecure communities.
