The set up of the workshop was as follows.
Step 1 (Envision) By means of vision canvases, elderly were encouraged to create and share their personal visions on mobility and how they would like to spend their ideal day. Step 2 (Presenting) At this stage the PSS proposals were presented to the elderly using storybooks. Finally Step 3 (Reflection) The group of elderly reflected upon the PSS proposals in three groups’ one group per proposal. This was supported by means of a facilitator, question cards and storybooks.
