A new program has recently been started to increase the participation of seniors in writing Czech Wikipedia. The project has been named "Seniors Write Wikipedia" (Senioři píší Wikipedii) after a successful Students Write Wikipedia program. The long-term goal is to create Wikipedia courses in senior clubs and universities of the Third Age but also call upon retired university professors, who represent a significant amount of 'unused' wisdom. The project is starting under the patronage of professor Jan Sokol, Czech philosopher and former president candidate. News from the project will hopefully follow soon.
