Eldera: Unlocking the Social Capital of Older Adults with Dorian Mintzer and Dana Griffin
Eldera is all about bringing forth the Era of the Elders. Eldera.ai is a virtual multigenerational village where generations come together to connect, learn from each other, have fun, and create a better future for all. Eldera connects kids worldwide with vetted older mentors for weekly virtual connections, which may include conversation, storytime, and activities.
The kids benefit from social-emotional learning and increased resilience, elders benefit from a sense of purpose and expanded community, and most importantly, everyone experiences more joy. Eldera is the opposite of eldercare — it is built on the belief that elders want and need to care for the next generation — it is in our DNA.
In this episode, you'll discover:
- How do we define the social capital of older adults?
- How can technology make it available at scale?
- How can it impact societal change?
- How can we envision a new intergenerational societal infrastructure?
