19 Mar ALL DIGITAL Week launched in 25 countries
19 Mar, 2018
ALL DIGITAL Week 2018 has started, and our partners are taking digital to the next level in their countries.
More than 1,245 partners in 25 European countries will bring training, seminars, workshops, talks and other initiatives to an estimated 80,000 participants, throughout at least 2,000 events.
Over 500 events are already showcased on the European map of ALL DIGITAL WEEK.
The campaign addresses digital and media literacy, online safety, cybersecurity, coding, and many other themes connected to digital skills and technology with online and offline actions and events.
Laurentiu Bunescu, CEO of ALL DIGITAL, commented, “We organise ALL DIGITAL WEEK to support Europeans in their digital transformation journeys. More than ever, we all need to invest in digital skills for media literacy, social inclusion, employability, entrepreneurship and education.”
ALL DIGITAL Week 2018 is supported by Certiport, a Pearson VUE business – the leading provider of certification exam development, delivery, and program management services. Fiona Fanning, Director of European Affairs, said, “As technology pervades all aspects of our lives, it has never been more important to ensure that all Europeans have the opportunity to gain the digital skills and certification that will help them succeed as a student, citizen, and an employee. We are thrilled to support the important mission of ALL DIGITAL Week in facilitating a truly pan-European digital transformation.”
The campaign has two main themes. The first is related to helping people build trust in technology by developing critical thinking and media literacy in a time with a lot of ‘fake news’ and distrust in the media. The second major theme is helping to develop a lifelong learning approach to enhancing digital skills in an ever-changing and increasingly digital-oriented economy.
To recognise the efforts of helping to develop digital skills for children, adults and the elderly, event organizers will receive certificates. They also automatically enter the contest for the Best event. The winners will be invited to attend the ALL DIGITAL Summit in Brussels in October 2018.
Do you think that you should be a National partner to participate? No! You just need to be willing to participate because anybody can join the campaign, even if there are no national partners in your country. If you want to see what events will happen or where, you can check the events map .
We invite PARTICIPANTS to share their impressions, opinions, photos, videos or feedback on social media with hashtag #alldigitalweek. And we encourage EVENT ORGANISERS to tell us about your activities on our community platform Unite-IT platform, which provides networking opportunities, hosts the photos, videos and stories from ALL DIGITAL Week.
