- The population of elderly increases significantly, especially in Indonesia. This condition has driven the government to initiate age-friendly city and community. Based on the study on age-friendly city conducted by SurveyMETER and CAS UI (2013), most dimensions of age-friendly city proposed by WHO have not been fulfilled yet, especially concerning on ‘respect and social inclusion’. Thus, SurveyMETER initiates a pilot Program Cerita Kehidupan Lanjut Usia (life story of older person program), a creative and service program involving 168 students from 7 schools in Bantul, D.I. Yogyakarta. The program aims at fulfilling the ‘respect and social inclusion’ dimension especially on ‘integrating knowledge about ageing into Bahasa Indonesia and or other language subjects’. In the program, the students are required to visit and interact with the elderly and at the end, they have to express their perspective towards elderly elderly and the values they learned from the visit in the form of an essay. This study investigates the correlationimpact of Program Cerita Kehidupan Lanjut Usia (life story of older person program) on the students’ respect to older person. The result shows that the program increases students’ knowledge, attitudes, and perception toward the elderlyelderly.
