Stanford Center on Longevity Design Challenge 2021-2022
The Stanford Center on Longevity is inviting university students to design solutions for people of all ages.
Successful aging is in part the result of the cumulative effects of years of interaction with the physical environment. Making communities longevity-ready for everyone means recognizing the way our environment affects well-being at all ages in the context of a 100-year life.
Starting even before birth, environmental factors such as air quality, availability of well-designed outdoor spaces and transit options, living conditions, and toxin exposure affect our physical and mental health.
These factors are also pathways by which inequality affects physical health – environmental quality is often worse for children and adults of lower socioeconomic status, leading to poorer health as they age.
This year, students are challenged to examine the physical environments in their communities and identify opportunities to design for an environment that better supports long lives.
Students are encouraged to consider all aspects of their physical environments including public spaces, indoor spaces, and urban design.
The deadline for submissions is December 2, 2021.
