Familiarizing senior citizens and families with the digital world

Senior citizens 
To improve the digital skills and self-reliance of senior citizens we are developing an online teaching programme, which will be used by the city of Amsterdam at the end of 2018 for its 'Digimate' project. We pair up young people as volunteers (through the Sina foundation) and senior citizens with a low educational level in the urban districts South, East and South-East. In 2019, the programme will be rolled out on a national level.

Families 
Digital life comes with benefits but also challenges for families. Parents quite often find it difficult to raise their children with a healthy approach to media. We look into ways to support parents and children in their usage of internet, games and social media, safely and consciously.
