The iCONNECT project aims to support the social engagement of students in higher education institutions (HEIs) in parallel to the social inclusion of older people with dementia by bringing them together in an intergenerational creative approach. By implementing the results from this project, HEI’s all over Europe will be able to contribute to the goals of dementia friendly environments. Intergenerational contact is established through an innovative creative learning module that combines theatre, poetry and music, tapping into the long term memory of older people with dementia. This program will be available on a blended learning platform, combining online and classroom methods to prepare students and learn about the different facets of dementia.
