On a day when ‘their lordships’ wake up to the lack of preparation for ageing that is rampant in the UK (BBC report) it is good to see Bosch doing something to raise awareness amongst children. This year’s Bosch Technology Horizons Award is a challenge to secondary school children to develop a video to explain how technology will help an ageing population. Peter Fouquet, President of Bosch in the UK said: “Bosch is committed to developing technologies that improve the quality of people’s lives and an ageing population is not only a big issue for the UK, but many countries around the world.” Entrants are invited to respond to the question: ‘In the future, how will technology help an ageing population?’ and they can upload their videos to YouTube and then onto the Bosch Technology Horizons Award app on the Bosch UK Facebook page. There will be a prize for the most popular video by votes received on Facebook and the top 20 most popular entries will be submitted to Bosch’s judging panel, which will award prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The closing date for entries is 26th June 2013 and the winners will be announced on the Bosch UK Facebook page on 15th July 2013.
