Education Portal/Newsletter/December 2013/Final report on "Silberwissen" available in English
The project "Silberwissen" (Silver Knowledge) was conducted by Wikimedia Deutschland as part of the EU-project "Third Age Online" (TAO). Goal of this project with 10 partners from three countries was to win new contributors for the Wikimedia projects. "Silberwissen" focused on encouraging older people with extensive work and life experience to start editing in Wikipedia and to increase the number of senior citizens contributing to the online encyclopedia on a long-term basis. Through this project, WMDE aimed at generating a win-win situation for the senior citizens participating in the project on the one hand, and for the Wikipedia communities and society as a whole on the other. The final report on this three-year project is now available in English.
