This project was born as an opportunity to empower our elder citizens by training them to acquire the skills to be creative on the web and to interact with their peers.

Spending an hour on Tiktok any adult can realize the creative potential and ability of the younger generations. This project will therefore generate the tools needed for young people to be able to train the elderly population on how they can be creative, express themselves, share their knowledge and interact with their peers in an online environment.
