Abstract

All too often, the people who use environments day-to-day are left out of the design process. For older people, this can feel particularly alienating. The Mobility, Mood and Place (MMP) project has brought together early career designers and older participants to envision places, from homes to public spaces, which are inclusive, enabling and inspirational. In this short guide, we’re sharing what we’ve
found from four years of co-design activities, which form part of the wider MMP project funded by the UK Research Councils’ ‘Lifelong Health and Well-being’ programme. If you are interested in learning more about the history, processes and potential of participatory design, you may find our A-Z of Co-Design helpful; it can be downloaded from our website.
