Access to the Digital World
Because "digital skills do not go with age…" COSMOTE has been contributing to the development of technological skills among older people with the "Access to the Digital World" program.
The program has been running since 2012 in cooperation with the NGO "50plus Hellas", which aims to promote lifelong learning and improve the quality of life of older people. More than 7.000 people have participated in the program over the last 5 years.
For 2018, five educational centers operate in total, in the municipalities of Athens (in two locations), Marousi, Piraeus and Thessaloniki. The classes can be attended by citizens from any Municipality of Attica and Thessaloniki, depending on the training center of their convenience, and always after registration and availability.
All the participants learn how to use the tablet, navigate the internet, enter the "world" of social media, and use applications to make their everyday life easier (notes, calendar, notifications, webcam, maps etc.).
