24 This cross-generational project involved elderly people from all sectors of the community, including those suffering from disadvantage or from mild dementia, sharing their life stories with young people from secondary schools. The project was aimed to motivate the whole community to adopt a caring approach to its elderly residents and to improve the overall quality of their life. The adults shared their life stories written on blogs with young people. Young people have been “paired” with adults under trainer’s supervision and enabled them to gain the new skills (Internet, , blog, chat, games). Interaction between adults and youth was focused on topics (i.e. places, schools, historical diets, former jobs and health in the past and present). Adults gained IT skills, confidence and self- esteem, while the young people enriched their knowledge of the history and social changes in their community.
