European Get Online Week is here…

This year, EU Get Online Week takes place this week 23-­29 March.

Inspired by the UK Get Online Week, Telecentre-Europe has extended it to a European level, to get new computer users online


.Since 2010, the Get Online Week campaign has reached more than 600,000 Europeans in more than 20,000 learning centres across Europe. As a result, more than 100,000 people have used the internet for the very first time.

By empowering people to use technology and the internet independently, many Europeans can benefit from a world full of online opportunities.

Whether you want to get a job, get healthy, connect with family and friends or get the best shopping bargains, getting online could help you do it. Despite this, 20% of the European population is still offline, and 39% of the EU workforce lack proper digital skills.

This year’s campaign focuses on two key areas - digital empowerment and digital inclusion. We need to ensure that we raise awareness, build people’s set of skills, and make sure no one is left behind.
