Welcome to our project website!
In order to age well it is crucial that people are able to live autonomously and self-determined for as long as possible. For this it needs a world without barriers and neighborhoods, which support autonomy and social participation. Meanwhile social participation increasingly also encompasses digital participation, as digitalisation transforms almost everyone area of our society.With our Erasmus+ project Bridge the Gap! (realized from October 2020 until September 2022) we want to find creative and sustainable ways to enable older people to live autonomously and to shape living environments in such ways to support the independence as well as the social and digital participation of older citizens. Bridge the Gap! wants to support and train older people to explore, analyse and (re-)shape their neighbourhoods with the help of digital tools.
On the morning of April 8th, the Dutch partner organisation AFEdemy organised an online interactive session on the proposed set-up of the training of the Bridge the Gap! Project. Ten interviewed older adults and experts, such as older adults’ advocacy organisation KBO-PCOB, SeniorTab, SeniorWeb and The Hague Library were present.
