It's possible to live in a community, but never truly connect with your neighbours. And if you're an older person you might feel that divide even more so now, having had to isolate for so long during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the latest episode of Golden Opportunities on RTÉ lyric fm, we drop in on the Community Time Machine project in Co. Wicklow that's addressing this challenge - listen above.
Organised by Neighbourhood Network, teenagers are put in contact with older people in their neighbourhood, working together on an interview and art piece, prompting conversations and new connections, aiming to build a stronger sense of community.
Golden Opportunities is produced by Grey Heron Media with the Creative Ireland Programme for Weekend Drive on RTÉ lyric fm - listen back to previous episodes here.
