co-creating inclusive 
age-friendly cities




We bring together co-creation, research and disruptive new technologies to transform urban planning within the public sector to create age-friendly cities.  Our innovation approach fosters the creation of a new ecosystem of older people, researchers, city manager and businesses, around the common goal of improving the efficiency and inclusion of urban life.

Join us as we develop local digital twins solutions for better urban planning. We'll share the discovery, learnings and achievements from our pilot cities, and hope you'll talk to us too.  Find us on Twitter and LinkedIn or sign up for news updates in the footer below.
