Role

People aged 16-24 are the loneliest people in the UK. Retired professionals are looking for ways to continue using their skills post-retirement.

 

EQuip brings these two populations together for their mutual benefit. Students gain access to knowledge from someone with decades of work experience, and retirees become more actively valued in society again.

 

EQuip is an inter-generational mentoring program focusing on the acquisition of hard and soft skills.

This project was made with Rob Krentz, Bohao Zhang, and Taisuke Ikawa.
