Project Intro

How do we tackle elderly isolation in super-ageing societies where fast-paced cultural and societal shifts are contributing to both the social and physical isolation of the elderly from younger generations?

Research reveals the key pain points of intergenerational interaction in Hong Kong as such:

  • Language and Conversational Barriers
  • Environmental/Circumstantial disconnect due to rapid Gentrification
  • Dying traditions and holidays as replaced by better-known Mainland or British alternatives

This project prompts the following: through the adaptation and use of physically sustainable products distributed by Coca-Cola, how can we design an activity that increases awareness and education in Cantonese society regarding important cultural and historic roots?
