This report summarises the findings of a series of workshops held in Swansea, Leicester and Manchester to explore people’s reactions to different aspects of an ageing population.

The workshops used ‘speculative design’ techniques as a way of provoking debate. Participants were presented with a series of images, or artefacts, from possible future scenarios in 2040 and asked to discuss their reactions to them.

The events were developed in partnership with Strange Telemetry and the Cabinet Office Policy Lab.
