Intergenerational mobility device wins French age-friendly cities award

E-He-project

  
E-Hé
has developped, with the support of the French city of Toulouse, an intergenerational multi-functional tool to facilitate mobility for all. E-He-project-imageThe ambition behind this project is to change the way people look at things and fight against stigmatisation and ageism.

"Imagine that you have put a pushchair, a walker and a shopping trolley together, and that you have stirred them very hard, until you get an object that synthesises all these functions, in the most playful and least stigmatising way possible", explains Thérèse Donnet, co-founder of E-Hé.

E-He-project-image2This project is a winner of the Age-friendly Cities (Ville Amie des Aînés) competition.
