To be part of the Neighbour Plateform
"Grenoble Voisins Voisines" enables the creation of "solidarity loops" to share tips, to help your next-door neighbours in their every day life when they contribute in managing the health crisis, or to take care of most vulnerable people.
In order to ease the relationships while limiting transports and contacts in accordance with lockdown measures, these solidarities are to be designed either at building scale thanks to a geolocation system for daily needs (primary need shopping for neighbourly elderly or vulnerable people...), or 100 % digitally (phone calls to prevent elderly isolation, tutorials, tips between residents...).
