 +# Next steps in our Living Well exploration
 +
 +[Originally posted on Mediablends 24/​03/​2015](http://​www.mediablends.com/​2015/​next-steps-in-our-living-well-exploration)
 +
 +Next Friday we'll take a major step forward in our exploration of Living Well in the Digital Age, with a workshop hosted by the Department for Communities and Local Government. It's a joint affair with our exploration partners, the Digital Inclusion Group of Age Action Alliance.
 +
 +The first part of the workshop will be an explanation from DCLG of their Grey Cells model, [which I wrote about here](http://​socialreporter.com/?​p=3202). ​
 +
 +Drew Mackie and I will then follow through with a demonstration of the simulation we've developed to help people plan local Living Labs. [There'​s a briefing paper here](http://​goo.gl/​fCy0FR). ​
 +
 +The simulation is based in part on one we ran with Globalnet21 and LGIU - [reported here](http://​socialreporter.com/?​p=3032) - using our ficitious town of Slipham. ​
 +
 +We won't be able to run a full simulation, but we will be able to look at how we could take on the role of a group of organisations in Slipham that have bid unsuccessfully for funds to create a Living Well programme for older people.  ​
 +
 +The Slipham group decide to go ahead anyway - using the latest thinking on frugal innovation, crowdsourcing ideas, co-design, and use of digital technology.
 +
 +As you'll see from the briefing paper, we'll have some props on hand including fictitious personas and organisations,​ and a map of local assets and relationships.
 +
 +The workshop should help inform further development of this and other simulations that can form part of a [local Living Lab process](https://​sites.google.com/​a/​mediablends.org/​livinglab/​).
