The global population is ageing, leading to shifts in healthcare needs. It is well established that increased physical activity can improve the health and wellbeing of many older adults. However, motivation remains a prime concern. We report findings from a series of focus groups where we explored the concept of using community displays to promote physical activity to a local neighborhood. In doing so, we contribute both an understanding of the design space for community displays, as well as a discussion of the implications of our work for the broader CSCW community. We conclude that our work demonstrates the potential for developing community displays for increasing physical activity amongst older adults.
