Event celebrates elderly people’s role in society
 
Demonstrating how to take a selfie to someone who grew up with analog cameras… playing soccer on a board with buttons with people who are used to scoring goals in video games… These were some of the highlights of a recent “Skillful Seniors” event, which brought together people of all ages to celebrate elderly people’s participation in society.
 
In partnership with NGO Atados, a Saturday morning full of intergenerational activities was held at Casa do Zezinho in São Paulo. Dancing, capoeira, graffiti, storytelling, a selfie challenge, a treasure hunt, volleyball, board games and karaoke activities caused major integration among the more than 100 participants, bringing together youth and elderly people assisted by Atados and volunteers.
