Service Design Consultant
"Help others, do no evil; help others do no evil"
Background in Commercial Consulting and Customer Experience Design. Spent the last year traveling around and trying to get to know our world a little better. I have come back with a desire to help solve some of the large social issues that I have become aware of and wanting to work with people towards this goal.
The roll of smart devices (phones, tablets etc) is growing, especially in how we interact with the world. Speaking to my friends, in the age group 20-26, the ones who didnt vote put it down to lack of convience.
Thank you for your build on this. I like that perspective on it. The more I have talked to friends around this they bring it down that route too. So it would be a nice blend of utilising a digital tool but for an real-life interaction?
Hi Bettina, Thanks for the build! You're right, anything with mobile tech could be difficult for initial engagement but with the help of social workers / volunteers the enrollment could be made simplier. Yes, it will be great to see what people will list and connect over, hopefully a nice mix of activities that require physical proximity for those more able bodied and also simple video / digital activites for those less mobile. The more low-tech and similer the better would be my hypothesis. Thank you for sharing you grandmothers story - what an age to reach.
