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.

Ten interviewed older adults and experts, such as older adults’ advocacy organisation KBO-PCOB, SeniorTab, SeniorWeb and The Hague Library were present.
