The LIFE 2.0 project aims at fostering the involvement of older people in local communities through the development of location-based services. The LIFE2.0 consortium project have developed a community platform, accessible through a web page and an iPad application, which offer 3 main services: i) the Mutual Help service which enable sharing practices among older people and their neighbors, ii) the Event service which offers an updated list of events and activities organized by local associations and iii) the Market Place service which enables links among older people and local businesses and service providers. Within the framework of LIFE 2.0 we have explored the design and use of online communities and community networks with older people and other relevant actors of their local community.
