2. How do the elderly do their daily activities without help from others.

1. What can the elderly do to benefit society and them selves. - We can ask elderly to use some of the skills that they have to help less fortunate people. This would make the elderly have a sense of pride knowing that they are still useful in the society.

2. Are the elderly helpless? - We can find out what the elderly can do.

Sustainable design

Sustainable design is mostly a reaction to global environmental crises, the rapid growth of economic activity and human population, depletion of natural resources, damage to ecosystems and loss of biodiversity.

In sustainable design, we should choose non-toxic, sustainably-produced or recycled materials which require little energy to process.

2. Research is important for us to understand and find out what we are doing.

3. We can conduct good research by going to reliable sources of information for the research that we are doing.We should also source the information and not plagiarize
