Futures of ageing

Ageing in the commune ‘Ahoy’

Where will I live in the future? “Definitively in a shared home/boat with old friends of mine.”


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

33 year old white women, living in Berlin and born in France, practicing design

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.

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.

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

I organize community events.

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Keep being curious about things happening around you; surround yourself with people you love.
