20 Jan ALL DIGITAL Week
Start date: 2010
Duration: every year in March
The pan-European ALL DIGITAL Week is following in the footsteps of Get Online Week (GOW) organised in 2010-2017. It s an annual digital empowerment campaign that engages people to use technology and the Internet with confidence and skills that allow them to benefit from online opportunities. It is run at digital competence centres, libraries, schools, community centres and non-for-profits across Europe, bringing 100,000 Europeans every year in exciting online and offline events tackling digital transformation and its effects. Supported by corporations, NGOs & public authorities, the campaign is organized each year in March by ALL DIGITAL.
The European Get Online Week was inspired by the campaign with the same name ran by UK Online Centres (now – Online Centres Network) in the UK. ALL DIGITAL extended it to the European level, to get new computer users online by helping them to get through the doors of their local ICT learning centres, enabling the staff to build people’s confidence to move on into a more structured learning.
In 2014-2016 GOW was part of the year-long eSkills for Jobs campaign organised by the European Commission, European SchoolNet and Digital Europe. GOW’s alignment to eSkills for Jobs and to the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs was extremely positive, boosting the reach and impact of GOW partners and actions.
In eight years of GOW of 2010-2017, 170,000 Europeans used the Internet for the first time and more than 1,000,000 people have enhanced their digital skills.
Among the earliest and staunchest supporters of GOW was Telecentre.org Foundation, one of the founders of Telecentre Europe. Among our corporate partners there have been Liberty Global, Microsoft, Cisco, Accenture, Certiport, Mozilla Foundation.
