We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

33 years old, white, actress and recently also student: Gender Studies and Pedagogy. Parent of 2 kids.

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

Shared flat with friends in a big city

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My friends with whom I have been friends for over 80 years now and my children and their friends. We travel together or alone, exchange ideas regularly and do city garden projects together

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

Adventure and growing together, not monogamous

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Basic income and many different paid small projects

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

For the projects that are currently underway, for the brunch with friends, for the visit of my children/grandchildren, for the branch meeting “transformation processes”

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?

That at some point I understood that there is no “normal”, that it is ok to surround yourself with people who do you good
