  • Digital infrastructure for age-friendly cities

    Yesterday a Workshop on the topic “Digital infrastructures for urban participation, culture and education” took place at the Centre for Computer science and Media technology (ZIMT) at the Hochschule Bremen. Representatives of different disciplines were invited to present their projects and research activities. The topics ranged from the technical implementation of mobile augmented reality and its application, the deployment of living labs to the question of the merits and dangers of citizen participation in urban planning and development. In my presentation on “the participatory development of a software based district guide for older adults”, I presented preliminary results of the Bremen fieldwork in the Mobile Age project and raised the question of possibilities and limits of “urban media” for processes of participation and inclusion.

Nine senior citizens had followed the announcement of the MobileAge project team. Together they went off in order to contribute their knowledge to the planned digital district guide for older adults.

    Equipped with appropriate clothing and umbrellas they walked from the protestant church to the senior residence, came across the community centre and the Tamra-Parc. On their route, they also visited the silver manufactory Wilkens and the former Coca-cola area and they went for lunch to “Eisen Werner”.
