Many senior citizens enjoy good health, aging often brings difficulties preventing older citizens from accessing goods and services and living independently. Ensuring accessibility for all is both a question of fundamental rights and crucial to making the most of the potential that senior citizens have in social and economic terms. Adult learning provides a means of up skilling or re-skilling those affected by unemployment and age, as well as makes an important contribution to social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development.
This project aims to offer opportunities to re-skill or up-skill their digital competences to become active citizens and socially included in the digital world in order to guarantee their activeness, social presence, e-governance, e-access, e-participation and personal development. Design, implement, monitor and evaluate a TOOL KIT that will re-skill or up-skill seniors’ digital competences to become active citizens and socially included in the digital world. Pilot-test the ‘SENIORS DIGITAL ONE STOP SUPPORT CENTRES’ in partner countries, both online and in-house that will offer various opportunities for training.
