Live longer die faster Part 2.
A lot of people want to participate doing things together with others. People want to show off their skills, to use the skills they have, and to feel part of a comunity or a society. But they want to participate on their own terms, and especially if thinking of elderly workers, in accordance with their own abilities.
Currently, in many cases, working conditions do not live up to this at all: timetables are stressed, flexibility is not allowed, and all tasks are based on a calculated profit, pushing the boundaries of what is ethical work outcome to its limit. This often ignoring that making profit in developed societies with a fairly high living standard, starts from the people doing the work, and them feeling they are doing something they believe in, somewhat like, and that has a purpose.
The time bank offers means to exchange small tasks.
Crowdsourcing tasks is a way of offering people work opportunities on their terms. Anyone can participate, offer their skills to others, do the work when they have time and when they want to. In the other end you can choose from the tasks offered to you by others.
Could the use of crowdsourcing neighbourhood tasks be of help to the elderly?
