Project Info

By linking the two major contemporary urban challenges, ageing population and creative economy, this research aims to re-visit several notions such as ‘ageing’ and ‘creative cities’, and to propose ‘sustainable social creativity’ as a conceptual tool for new urban design of a ‘creative ageing city’. Overlaying the perspectives from urban design theory, urban sociology and cultural geography, the research investigates regional appropriation of ‘active ageing’ and ‘ageing-in-place’ in diverse local conditions, and discusses the new emerging trend of ‘creative ageing’ through bottom-up, open-source urban initiatives by the senior urbanites.
