Abstract: The “Torre da Memória” project aims to involve 54 young and 54 elderly people in vulnerable situations living in the municipality of Esposende. This project is thus dedicated to the empowerment of vulnerable young people of Esposende, to the active ageing of the elderly in the local fishing community, and to promote the inclusion of both target groups. It therefore aims to significantly increase the linguistic, inter-relational, creative and social skills of the young participants, and to develop a greater offer of cultural and social activities for the elderly.
