In a remarkable display of international collaboration, the DigitalScouts project consortium came together for their second Transnational Project Meeting on October 23rd and 24th, marking a significant milestone in the quest to empower older adults in their use of digital tools.
The consortium is coordinated by the German organization ISIS (Institut für oziale Infrastruktur) with five other dedicated partners: SHINE 2Europe (Portugal), the BerufsWege für Frauen e.V. (Germany), the AFEdemy, Academy on Age-Friendly Environments in Europe (the Netherlands), the Asociatia Grupul de Educatie si Actiune pentru Cetatenie (Romania) and the Austrian Red Cross (Austria).
The Digital Scouts project carries a noble mission: to equip older adults with the digital skills they need to navigate the modern world, promoting not only opportunities for health and wellness but also fostering greater social, cultural, and political engagement.
During this Transnational Project Meeting, the partners unveiled the substantial progress they’ve made in several project activities. Worth of mention was the discussion on the learning structure and content for the DigitalScout’s Training and the Toolkit. Additionally, the project quality assurance and green practices implementation were presented along with progress on the sharing and promotional activities.
As the DigitalScouts project forges ahead, it’s clear that this innovative consortium is bringing us one step closer to a world where older adults can confidently navigate the digital landscape, enriching their lives in countless ways.
Stay tuned for more updates on this inspiring project that’s making a difference in the lives of our seniors!
