DIGITOL Toolkit collects the methodology, the material and the evaluation results of a Training of Trainers programme carried out in the Digitol project countries (namely: Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy) from November 2020 to May 2021. The Programme was aimed to build capacities of a group of young people (The Young Ambassadors) willing to improve their digital skills in identifying and managing fake-news, as well as increase awareness of the European common values. Following the TOT Programme, the Young Ambassadors were prepared to co-design and run a Capacity Building Programme targeting older adults, following an intergenerational approach.

This Toolkit was developed as part of the activity planned by the DIGITOL project- “ Digital Inclusion for Older People – Intergenerational synergies for the active participation in society” (No 612208-EPP- 1-2019-1-ITEPPKA3-IPI-SOC-IN), funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme. Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027. Education, training, youth and sport are key areas that support citizens in their personal and professional development.



DIGITOL is a European project funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Commission. It aims to combat hate speech and misinformation with digital literacy and intergenerational contacts between more naturally proficient users (younger Europeans) and less digitally-literate users (older Europeans). DIGITOL aims to help older adults become more proficient and aware Internet users thanks to an evidence-based and tested lifelong-learning method, that makes the most of intergenerational learning and solidarity.
