How do we connect people across generations using a common activity? What if we could create a a weekly ritual where two people can build a bond by cooking and sharing a meal together? Now creating a toolkit here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xIifbz5GUIBuHXTqTUAZgP6mHYR2-50VbPK14Xy2_Jg/edit?usp=sharing

What if we can bring together seniors and younger volunteers and give them a tool stimulates conversation and facilitates collaboration around a shared experience? That's what we would like to achieve with this idea. Let's design and build a tool that will support intergenerational collaboration towards one goal: writing a book of life stories "together".

Younger people interview older adults about their "Best Recipe", document it, help cook and learn how to cook it, and transmit it forward long after the initial contact has receded into the past.

The "panic button buddy" would be a carry-able device, similar to an electronic car key, which would attract attention by emitting a loud alarm and sending GPS info to a community base and/or local authority.

Once while driving in San Francisco, I came upon a very loud angry fight where a man was yelling at a woman, and seemed to have violent intent. While I could not stop the fight, I did pull up to the incident, and get out of my car and stayed there until the woman could get in her car. Just by "bearing witness" I was able to help the other woman, because the man clearly didn't want anyone to see his behavior.

I noted in the research that women feel more secure with the presence of other women and that there is safety in numbers.

A lot of inspirations have one thing in common: space. What if there was a platform making all those valuable approaches in your neighborhood transparent?
