This project started in January 2020 and will terminate at the end of 2022. It aims to analyse and share the resources of elderly people in order to prevent their social isolation. The project will lead to the formulation of communal action plans with this aim. Methodologically, we primarily use walk-alongs to geolocalise material, social and affective resources in three communes of the Canton of Neuchâtel. The project is led by the Service of Public Health of the Canton and funded by Promotion Santé Suisse, a federal agency. It associates the Canton, the Réseau Urbain Neuchâtelois (RUN) and the University of Neuchâtel. The University leads the scientific part of the project. The PIs are Tania Zittoun (Institute of Psychology and Education) and Ola Söderström (Institute of Geography). The study team at the university of Neuchâtel includes Fabienne Gfeller (post-doctoral researcher), Isabelle Schoepfer (PhD student) and Aurora Ruggeri (Master student).
