A network for senior citizens

In Berlin’s Märkisches Viertel, an information and interaction network has been providing senior citizens with information on local social infrastructure since 2017. This network was developed collaboratively within seniors living with the district and provides current information on events, senior-oriented offerings other relevant information. It also has a specific focus on increasing media skills among senior citizens via the educational course “CyberSeniors”. Using their mobile infopoint, coordinators of the online network travel around the district and demonstrate the its capabilities to local seniors. These in-person appearances are accompanied by printouts of current offerings from the site, allowing seniors unfamiliar with the site to get a first-impression of what it has to offer without having to first log on to a computer.
