BRIDGE

Bridging intercultural, intergenerational and social divide

In this project we are working with several partners around Europe to develop methods and materials for cooking sessions in which young and senior people meet each other and develop all kinds of new digital skills. The reasons for this project is that contacts between the old and young generations have changed and are sporadic. Older people miss digital competences and feel not included in society. Contacts between young en senior people is very helpful for senior people to feel included in the society and to develop digital skills.
