D4L for GE (Design for Longevity through the lens of Gender Equity) is a collaborative research project between MOME Social Design Hub and MIT AgeLab.
Based on previously conducted research on gender equity (FRUSKA), and the concept of Design for Longevity (D4L) from MIT, experimental practice-based research was conducted by using 4E questions through the lens of social and environmental sustainability, inclusiveness, ethics, and longevity. Preliminary research and participatory design-based workshops create a space of inquiry with vulnerable youth from Belvárosi Tanoda School, which delve into the future vision crafting of young people.
The workshops and developed concepts were framed by survey and interview-based impact measurement. The goal of the research is to develop introductory training material for both the community and practitioners/educators, which can be used without a designer’s presence.
