All the activities of Simbioza Genesis, Social Enterprise incorporate three main ideas: intergenerational cooperation, volunteering and lifelong learning.
The story of Simbioza began in 2011 with a nationwide volunteer project, where young volunteers taught the elderly how to use computers. The core activities and objectives of Simbioza focus on promoting lifelong learning through intergenerational cooperation focusing on elderly community to acquire basic computer skills, improving the digital skills and competences among other target population, raising awareness and reaffirming faith and importance in volunteering and solidarity among the generations.
Our main mission is to promote an inclusive digital society and active participation of all generations. Since 2011 Simbioza has established various projects, among others:
– Simbioza BTC City Lab: where we daily execute adapted ICT workshop for elderly (55+) and advanced digital workshops for different target groups (youth, students, unemployed, employees, NGOs, companies, etc);
– Simbioza School: nationwide network of elementary and primary schools. Pupils and students execute the adapted ICT workshops for elderly in their local communities;
– Simbioza International, where we try to share our know-how and experiences with foreign partners.
