ALL DIGITAL and ICTSkills4All Consortium are pleased to invite you to the event "Empowering Older People for the Digital World Through Intergenerational and Peer Learning
" on 10 February at 10:00-12:45 CET
project is coordinated by the University of Porto and involves five partners from 5 countries: Portugal, Poland, Latvia, UK, and us in Belgium (none of the partners are our members, so it might be interesting for you to see how things are done elsewhere). The aim of the project is to develop and pilot an intergenerational and peer-to-peer ICT Learning Programme
to improve confidence, digital skills and online safety
of older people
with no or just with basic digital skills.
The event will consist of two sessions:
This enriching panel discussion
will bring together high-level speakers (all confirmed) from the European Institutions and key stakeholders working in the field of digital inclusion to share their insights on how to better include older people in our digital society during and after Covid-19 pandemic. Panelists will be invited to consider the issues above, present good practices examples and reflect on the strategies addressing the great challenges related to digital literacy and the place given to digital inclusion of older people on the EU agenda.
