CIT for seniors ecosynergy
Can computers and the internet be tools that facilitate communication, discussions and actions among senior citizens? Can the Internet provide more knowledge about pollution and the environment’s protection? These questions will be answered by our latest project “CIT for seniors ecosynergy”.
‘Senior citizens for ecology and a sustainable development’ is the motto of the project realized within the European Erasmus Plus Program “Long Life learning”. The project is a collaboration of three NGOs: Poland – Social Ecological Institute (www.sie.org.pl), Sweden- MobilEducation (www.mobileducation.se), Turkey – TROY Environmental Association (http://troyacevre.webs.com) and the Center for Adult Education in Austria – SPES Zukunftsakademie (www.spes.co.at).
The aim of this international partnership is the exchange of experiences, knowledge, most efficient practices with the result aiming at developing innovative approaches and teaching methods that motivate seniors and break the mental barriers in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT).
The final results of the project will be the project’s website www.ecosynergy50plus.com, a Handbook of ICT for eco-seniors, which will contain a summary of most efficient practices, most valuable experiences shared by the partners, as well as information on the use of ICT in everyday life. There will also be a blog – daily eco-seniors, which will be run by senior citizens interested in environmental issues.
