Older people have interesting stories to tell. Talking about their personal stories with others helps to maintain their self-confidence and self-esteem and keeps them socially and cognitively active and connected.

"HiStory" also promotes true "participatory democracy" in documenting our heritage. The solution is built from existing building blocks: Recording, sharing, writing and consuming stories and connecting through stories.
