Collection of Ideas

The digitalization of elderly individuals in the city is a significant challenge due to the wide range of different needs, levels of knowledge, and equipment with technical devices. With the offerings in the neighborhoods, we are already showcasing a multitude of initiatives.

But what else is needed to support the digitalization of elderly individuals?

  • Do you have any additional offerings and gatherings for elderly individuals in your vicinity?
  • What else is needed to support the digitalization of elderly individuals?
  • Would you perhaps like to initiate a project or an initiative yourself and require assistance with it?
  • What kind of offerings do you wish for in your neighborhood?

What ideas do you have in this regard? Feel free to contact us anytime at innovation@mag.linz.at or come visit our office at Pfarrgasse 3 with your concerns.
