About the project
Digital participation is an important key to thriving in today’s world, and it’s crucial to provide support that meets individual needs. It’s also important to recognise the benefits that digital applications can bring to individuals. That’s why it’s essential that trainers or other supporters have a broad understanding of the possibilities available to cater for different people.
The DigitalScouts project builds on these aspects by developing an educational offer that qualifies “digital scouts” to support older people in the use of digital tools, so that they can benefit from the opportunities of digitalization for social, cultural, and political participation and in the area of health promotion.

Providers of support services for older people (municipalities, associations, non-profit organisations, district managers, social agencies).
People interested in the topic and our project. In the project, we will pilot the trainings and train people to support people 60+. These people are therefore indirectly addressed by the project.
