Wissensdurstig.de: a German online portal to promote learning in old age

Wissensdurstig-logoWissensdurstig.de is an internet portal of BAGSO - Federal Association of Senior Citizens' Organisations and AGE’s member organisation in Germany.

Created in 2017 with the support of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ), the portal provides nationwide information and resources to promote learning and education in old age and specifically in the context of digitalisation.

On wissensdurstig.de, you will find:

  • educational opportunities for older people throughout Germany,
  • tips and materials on digitisation and education in old age,
  • interesting facts for education providers,
  • good practice examples
  • current information on digitisation, education, projects, campaigns and more.

Education providers can register on the portal and enter their education offers online themselves or use an automatic interface to their own event database. The providers should be non-profit organisations and the offers should be affordable.
