“Les Rhiz’homes” is an association project whose aim is to create shared spaces that facilitate encounters between young people and the elderly, who, together with volunteers, are invited to create, lead or participate in activities and events. Refusing to relegate the elderly to a situation of dependence and vulnerability, “Les Rhiz’homes” wishes to provide a framework for a balanced, reciprocal and dynamic relationship between young and old. We therefore call on the elderly and young people to become a force of proposal, by inviting them to lead workshops based on their skills, knowledge and passions! These workshops are based on three principles:
1. The activity is voluntary: it is based on a desire expressed by the older person or the young person. Each participant can therefore find his or her place!
2. The transmission takes place in both directions. Each person can take turns to be the driving force behind an activity.
3. The activities take place in a dedicated third place, which the participants can make their own in order to make it a real place of sharing and conviviality.
