It is not only a solidarity program, but also a training and health program. The initiative that was born during the 2020 quarantine has grown to include young people and older adults from all over the world.

According to the International Center on Aging, loneliness is a medical risk factor that has implications for personal, economic, and social well-being. Studies have linked loneliness to many serious health problems, including dementia, heart disease, depression, and stroke.

Intergenerational meetings are effective in alleviating the negative emotional and cognitive effects that loneliness entails in both the elderly and the young people themselves.
