Less alone together

Dear Sir or Madam,

It will be Christmas soon - for most a time of joy and family. But not everyone has the chance to spend these days in the circle of close people. It is not only during the Christmas season that many people suffer from loneliness and social isolation, especially in old age or due to illness. How the Norwegian start-up No Isolation wants to solve this problem through technology can be found out in our current interview.

Merry Christmas wishes,

Sonja Koller
Editorial team
