Background

The WOWSA (What's on the Web Safely for Adults) Project is a development from the original WOW (What's on the Web) Grundtvig Partnership Project 2010-12 that sought to bring together diverse groups of adult learners to learn and improve their basic IT Skills. WOWSA takes the concept one step further to help promote digital inclusion and eSafety for often marginalised adult groups in this, the Web 2.0 era.

Project

There are four partners from three countries in this Grundtvig Learning Partnership 2012-2014: UK x 2, Poland and Turkey. Visit the Partners page for more details.

Aim

The aim of the project is to promote intergenerational solidarity by breaking down barriers between age groups whilst fostering collaborative learning opportunities between younger and older adults who are often more vulnerable online. With more and more social services moving online, it is vital that all members of society can use and navigate the once exclusive worlds of the internet safely, efficiently and together!

 

The local and international activities of The WOWSA Project seek to promote intergenerational solidarity by breaking down barriers between age groups. Read more about WOWSA and other Intergenerational Projects and initiatives on the EUROPA website run by the European Commission here >>>
