The Toolbox

This intellectual output aimed to create a new “language” of interaction between young and old people in low density urban areas. The starting point will be the most commonly used emojis in social networks nowadays to create an understanding of how graphic representations can lead to emotions and emotional coherence in written or text-based communication. The new language should take into account the local needs and produce unique deliverables to be used and improved from within the local community in an inter-generational manner. To enhance the use of this “new languages” several tools were produced and/or suggested. This output puts relevance not only on the capacity to communicate, but on the way to maintain and develop a sense of community, belonging and respect for folk and cultural heritage. Local communities are the new spring of human communication on the age of digital networking. There’s nothing as valuable as a second of human interaction.
