Your associations with "ageing"?
#Reduced mobility

Tell us more about your future of ageing. What's it like?
Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?
Definitively in a shared home/boat with old friends of mine. Having a community lifestyle and sharing activities.
Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?
The friends I live with and with whom I share a common project
What is your sex and love life like in the future?
I see myself having a partnership relationship based on emotional attachment. Sexuality is performed with other partners, probably even gigolos
Thinking into the future: How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?
I wish to be ageing in a multigenerational environment where younger people help me to keep up with societal's transformations. Physically, I maintain my body doing yoga and going for walks.
How do you afford everyday life in the future?
Some parts of the boat/house I'm living in will be rented for events allowing me to get a reasonable amount of money to live on
Thinking of your future older self: What do you get up for in the morning?
I organize community events

You're looking back at your fulfilled life and a much younger friend of yours asks about your secret of happiness and fullfillment. What do you tell them? What would you recommend to them?
Keep being curious about things happening around you; surround yourself with people you love
