As the population of elderly people in our society grows, so does the burden on our welfare system. At the same time, the group of elderly with skills and resources is also growing. We want to make this resource-pool available to the group of ‘elderly in need’.
Gift-to-Gift (GtG) will leverage the emerging ‘two-generation retirement generation’ with a collaborate economy approach to engaging the elderly in continued civic participation and help solve future welfare systems challenges.
The project aims to co-create a novel collaborative economy initiative, which both assists and activates the elderly population living at home. The Initiative mimics the situations where a friend or neighbor does you a favor – but to extend beyond friends and neighbors, Gift-to-Gift gives elderly without a local support network the chance to receive help from other seniors.
“Gift To Gift” is supported by the EU & the AAL programme
