What makes this organisation a social enterprise?
(On)Wijsheid is convinced of the importance of making young people, teachers and parents aware of the benefits and dangers of online media.
In their day to day work, (On)Wijsheid notices the fact that the online media world is still an unknown territory for many people. Not only for adults but also for young people. That is the reason why (On)Wijsheid decided to train young people about the world of online and social media. They also develop teaching materials, games and workshops that address social issues such as cyber bullying, racism, online safety, etc. A rewarding task according to the entrepreneurs.
(on)Wijsheid considers the Netherlands as a frontrunner in terms of active use of social media. The impact this heavy use has on the social development of the students and also on their way of learning is significant. In this context the current way of education is still lagging. A generation gap is evident. (on)Wijsheid wants to help education modernise so teachers can truly reach the students and help them find their place, prevent social exclusion and grow to be who they want to be.
“We get much satisfaction and energy from it and we learn just as much from youngsters as they learn from us!”
