Abstract

New regional challenges have arisen in modern Japan such as a fading sense of community and social isolation. To challenge these, we will launch a welfare design lab where professors and students will work together with community residents to identify and solve regional challenges through design-based welfare engineering expertise. This work-in-progress paper introduces our current interests and approach to the project.
