In the digital era and knowledge based society nobody can be left behind for their own benefit and the benefit of society. But, learning to go digital has to be meanigful for older people and the results are to be visible and connected with their (creative) life.
Digital tools have become an integral part of our lives. They help to maintain communication possi¬bilities or open up new ones, to organise everyday life via Internet, even with limited mobility, to bring art, culture and social life into the home without having to set foot outside the door, and to simplify many processes, such as dealing with authorities. Digital participation thus contributes to maintaining and increasing the quality of life in old age and enable an independent lifestyle.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
How do older people get excited about trying out digital tools and integrating them into their daily lives?
How can older people become visible as experts in their own living environment?
How can we accompany older people on their way into the digital world and thus promote social participation and digital equality?
- To train and empower older people to explore their neighbourhood with the help of digital tools. In low-threshold workshops, the participants jointly develop app-based walks in their living environ¬ment. These walks are then tested together with other interested peers and made accessible for others free of charge.
- To increase digital participation of older people
- To better social participation of older people through digitalisation
- To contribute to closing the digital gap.
- To create low-threshold & innovative learning opportunities for older people.
- To enable older people to act as experts
The target group of the project are older women and men in the post-professional phase who would like to develop and offer free interactive web-based walks together with and for older people.
