In one of the most expensive cities in the world, students are moving in with older people who have spare rooms as part of a “homeshare” scheme. The young people in Paris get cheap accommodation and the older people get companionship and support in return. World Hacks reports on the generation-spanning friendships that are blossoming as a result. Presented by Sahar Zand. Photo: Monique and Mikyoung, who are part of the homeshare scheme / Credit: BBC
