Ciciarapp / turning loneliness into chatting


The purpose is to develop an intervention that combine two kind of solitude: old people that usually spend a lot of time alone and adolescents with special needs who often do not have activities to perform during the afternoon. The final aim, is to create a new application/web-page (ciciarAPP);through this free downloadable application/web-page relatives of elderly people will be able to select one of the participants in order to spend one hour together.Thanks to a system of geo-location the parents of the adolescents will be able to always know where they are. This new model of social innovation could be replicated also in other cities.
