Let's open the digital world to seniors with Wikipedia in 2024

December on Czech Wikipedia belongs to seniors. Help us to open the digital world for them. We have already taught over 600 of them how to write Wikipedia for free. They are gaining a meaningful new hobby, and friends and passing on the wisdom they have obtained. Will you join us in this unique project?

Seniors and Wikipedia are a perfect match

Being a senior doesn't mean being useless. They have knowledge, experience and the desire to pass it on. Learning how to contribute to Wikipedia is a great way to do that, and to enrich the most comprehensive encyclopedia.

The most enthusiastic graduates of our courses have written hundreds of articles on personalities, nature, art or anything else they enjoy. Often these are areas they have spent a lifetime specializing in. Through the project, they gain a sense of belonging, purpose a hobby and the joy of a legacy that they leave behind.

Become a patron of seniors who want to stay active

If you think that the experience and knowledge gained by seniors should not go to waste, become a patron of the project. You will give them a new tool for self-fulfilment and a chance to contribute to the world's largest online encyclopaedia. Our goal is to teach every Czech senior who wants to write Wikipedia how to do it. Simply because it makes sense.

As František, a graduate of our course for seniors, says: "This is an extraordinary opportunity for people of my age, i.e. seniors, to do something for themselves and for the public."
