A project that bridges the generation gap

A “living library” project in Malaysia’s capital is sharing older people’s knowledge with the young, to improve the lives of retired people and bridge Kuala Lumpur’s generation gap. It links groups of students with retirement homes so older people can discuss the challenges they face living in the city and the students can offer solutions. The project is run by the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community, an international network of young professionals from business, academia and civil society, seeking to make a positive impact in local communities.
