The core aim and overall objective we want to achieve with SEN4CE is to engage and empower seniors for the green, sustainable, and digital circular economy of the future and involve them in high quality adult education and life-long learning.

All the results of SEN4CE will be available in English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.

Result 1: Circular Economy for seniors and life-long learning

A course curriculum (including learning content) on circular economy for seniors was developed. The curriculum has been created for 2 EQF levels (one version for enabling 2-3, one version for enabling 3-4) to ensure compatibility with the diverse learning needs of seniors 60+.

Result 4: Digital learning materials

Digital training materials were developed, based on the concepts and curricula of R1-R3. The software Articulate was used to create non-linear, scenario-based gamified e-learnings. The digital training materials are fully responsive and the design takes into account the needs of the target group (seniors) and respect highest barrier-free standards. The digital training is based in blended learning methodology.


Result 5: SEN4CE Digital environment

The SEN4CE digital environment is the primary sharing and promotion tool for the digital training courses. Special attention is given to the design and visual identity to respect the needs of the target group seniors (easy access/barrier free). Instead of developing “yet another platform”, the aim is to create the highest possible compatibility with existing platforms.
