A table on the move

Written By Juliane Jarke

During the last months, we have developed a digital district guide for and with older adults in Bremen. We did this together with our technical Partners from FTB (Forschungsinstitut Technologie und Behinderung der evang. Stiftung Volmarstein) and senior citizens from Bremen Osterholz as well as local stakeholders like social workers, the head of the district council and different organisations. A first prototype is online since a few weeks and we are collecting feedback on the design as well as the content.

In order to raise awareness and to facilitate the access to it for people who don’t have digital devices we will provide different institutions in the district with our multi-touch-table in the upcoming weeks. We started in the beginning of May in “Café Blocksberg”, in six weeks the table is going to “Café Gabriely” and afterwards locations in other neighbourhoods will follow.

We are curious about the feedback of the users and hope that many older adults in Osterholz are interested.
