Interview with Inge van der Poel from We Are Elderberry

Last Friday, Kate, Aarti, and I had the privilege of interviewing We Are Elderberry co-founder Inge van der Poel. A few weeks ago Inge gave a talk at the Melbourne Design Thinking and Innovation meet-up, about her work at AGL Energy. As their Human-Centered Design Lead Inge is her harnessing expertise in human-centred design to help AGL navigate though a rapidly changing energy landscape. 

In 2014 she launched We Are Elderberry, designing alternative futures for ageing, longevity and a multigenerational society.

Unlocking the potential of the elderly

In 2014 Inge spoke at TEDxSouthBank  about the value of wisdom, the opportunity to rethink our notion of retirement, and the need for alternatives that give older people opportunities to participate in meaningful work.
