Resumo: This paper discusses the importance of the info-exclusion/info-inclusion of elderly people. Recently several initiatives taken from the EU encourage the info-inclusion of all the European citizens in special women, unemployed, and the elderly people. A problem related to the participation of older people in learning activities is that learning is traditionally often designed for younger people’s learning needs and skills. As our societies become older, a shift needs to be made towards older audiences in older to integrate them with younger generations. But the problem is that educational solutions rarely address the interests and specific needs of older people. Our conviction is that ICT can help elderly people to improve quality of life, stay healthier and live independently for longer. Portugal also launched several initiatives regarding the info-inclusion but as like the other countries some obstacles must be overcome and some proposals for the future will be presented.
