    People of all ages cycle in the Netherlands. Making the streets safe enough for people from the age of 8 to 80 is not something to strive for but already a reality. This video focuses on the more senior and the very young cycling in the Netherlands. You don't have to look hard. Older people and children are everywhere. In fact the typical cyclists in other countries (fit males aged 20-35) are underrepresented in the Netherlands, other age groups are far more visible.

  • Intergenerational learning: exchanges between young and old | Jurriën Mentink | TEDxAmsterdamED

    In many university towns, there is a shortage of affordable student housing. In those same towns, elderly people often live in isolation in nursing homes, where learning ceases. What happens when you try to solve multiple social issues with one solution? In Deventer, what happened is the creation of an intergenerational learning model which has had incredible effects on its participants. By offering students free housing in nursing homes in exchange for time spent with its residents, this solution proposed by a Dutch student has stimulated one of the most beautiful and effective intergenerational learning models in the Netherlands. So simple, in fact, that it's an idea worth spreading far and wide. In his funny and touching talk, Jurriën Mentink will describe the initiative in Deventer ...

Care homes in the Netherlands have come up with an innovative solution to the housing crisis and the isolation of the elderly: the young and old living together. The Humanitas care home in Deventer, Netherlands, are offering students free accommodation in return for 30 hours a month spent with their older neighbours. Designated as "good neighbours", the students spend time chatting with their new friends. "It's just like a high school" says Jurrien Mentik, as he discusses his newest girlfriend with Joke van Beek, an older resident of the home. Joke speaks about the time Jurien taught her how to play beer pong. "I think that the students influence the whole tone of the conversation here", CEO Gea Sijpkes explains on the thinking behind her idea. One of the harsh realities for the students is that they lose some of their friends along the way. But Jurien sees it differently: "it's a nice feeling to help them find their final moments of happiness".

Emil, aged 24 and a kindergarten teacher, struggled to find housing because of the high cost of rent and scarce availability. "Basically, I was homeless; not on the street, but homeless," said Emil. According to The Global Property Guide, Helsinki is the 16th most expensive city in the world to rent an apartment - even more expensive than New York. Emil and Jonatan, who is aged 19 and a pastry chef student, were both among 300 applicants that applied for a new housing program called "A Home That Fits," which provides cheap housing for young people under 25 years old in a senior's home for a year. Each young resident must spend at least three to five hours in the company of the elders each week, socializing and conversing. It is not the first program of its kind. In the Netherlands, a program offers free accommodation to college students in order to encourage social interaction with elders. With so many cities across the globe facing an increase in demand, the project may be replicated further. So far for Helsinki's program, the project has been off to a successful start, and Emil and Jonatan are thoroughly enjoying their new homes and new neighbors. "Because I work with children, and I have friends that are my age and then with elderly, I get to basically see the whole spectrum of ages in Finland," said Emil. "Through that, I can understand the Finnish culture better and just life, I guess. It's cool that I can get to know people of all ages."

In his funny and touching talk, Jurriën Mentink will describe the initiative in Deventer and the results of a simple experiment gone right. Jurriën Mentink, a student of Urban Design at the Saxion University of Applied Sciences, is one of a handful of students who live at the Humanitas Residential and Care Center, a long-term aged care facility in Deventer, the Netherlands. He lives rent-free in exchange for 30 hours of volunteer work per month, during which he helps the elderly residents in various activities, from teaching them computer skills, to having meals and meaningful conversations together, that ultimately enriches all their lives.
