about

In short

Simbioza international – expanding intergenerational symbiosis overseas: Having in mind the coherent and indispensable know-how, the structure and a wide pallet of experiences, we plan to internationalize this project.

 

In principle, the aim is to bring this established platform abroad in terms of transferring our know-how and therefore establishing a kind of franchise. In this regard, we are actively looking for competent, interested and motivated youth organizations, to which this know-how would be transferred so to successfully and effectively implement this project in their country of origin.

If you are interested in cooperation and motivated to make a great contribution towards improving the wellbeing of the people in a wider international society, we kindly invite you to readthe attached documentation and do not hesitate to contact us in this regard for any further information!

Success

In 2011 the Simbioza project brought together more than 2500 young volunteers who introduced 5700 elders the basic computer skills. The project was a success and therefore repeated in 2012, achieving outstanding results once again. This year, in October 2013, the project will be carried out for the third time aiming at even larger numbers of participants with new inspiring challenges and experiences ahead.

Internationalization

Having in mind the coherent and indispensable knowhow,
the structure and a wide pallet of experiences, the next challenge stands in
internationalizing this project.

It goes without saying, that contemporary social issues that have been the trigger for
launching the Simbioza project, are not only local, but are considered a global
phenomenon. Therefore, the aim is to bring this platform abroad, with the purpose to
raise awareness of the importance of volunteering among the younger generations,
improve the e-literacy of the specified target groups, and in this regard to make an
important step towards bridging the intergenerational gap within a wider international
society. We are firmly convinced that the Simbioza model can be applied in different
social, cultural, economic and political context, heading towards a global reach.
The strategy: In principle, the aim is to bring this established platform abroad in
terms of transferring our know-how and therefore establishing a kind of franchise. In this regard, we are actively looking for competent, interested and motivated youth organizations, to which this know-how would be transferred so to successfully and effectively implement this project in their country of origin.
