Thesis Overview

In short, my thesis is about researching the needs of retirees and refugees and designing a service to connect these groups. I am inspired by stories of retirees from around the world who have formed relationships of reciprocity with refugees by welcoming them into their lives and communities. This presentation reveals some of these stories and serves as an overview of my motivations.
