An Unlikely House Share

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.
