HH Global Supports Google and Age Action

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

HH Global is supporting one of its key clients, Google, with the launch of a new website helping Ireland's younger generations' to teach their parents and older loved ones how to get the most from the Internet.  GetYourFolksOnline.ie hopes to mobilise younger people across Ireland to pass their Internet skills on to the older people in their lives.

As part of the initiative, HH Global is providing pro bono print services to create a ‘Beginners Guide to Teaching the Internet’ media insert, promoting an online course designed to help younger people teach older people how to get online.

In conjunction with Age Action, which uses best practice guidelines on how to teach older people to get the most from the Internet, the inserts will be used widely across Ireland in the build up to Christmas, with a possible wider roll-out which HH Global would also support.

Sinéad Gibney, Head of Social Action at Google, comments:  “There is huge demand from older people for Internet classes.  We want to start a new movement which will see younger people make the conscious decision to share their knowledge with an older relative. If people sit down together in a one to one teaching atmosphere, we have found it can be a great bonding experience for both the parent and their teacher, whether they are a relative or a stranger.”

Robert MacMillan, CEO, HH Global said:  “It gives us great pleasure to be involved in such a worthwhile and prestigious initiative.  Google set a high standard in Corporate Social Responsibility and HH Global is proud to have them as a client and be able to support both them and Age Action in such a rewarding project.”
