  • MobileAge App goes online on Bremen Online

    On Friday 9th of February 2018, our digital district guide developed in Bremen Osterholz was officially launched on the official city portal As part of the Mobile Age project we worked together with a group of 11 older adults from the district Osterholz from May 2016 to February 2017 to develop a concept for the digital district guide and implement it as a prototype. The result is a map based district guide with information on 17 beautiful places and paths as well as more than 70 institutions from the fields of culture, sports, meeting and counselling. The result of our work has now been migrated to the official city portal of Bremen. You will find the district guide under the following link: Such a sustainable adoption of project results is not a matter of course and we are pleased that the results of our work are still accessible and supported after the end of the project.
