EC’s efforts to promote digital skills among EU population, especially among young people and long-term unemployed, are redoubling. Code skills are expected to be increasingly demanded in the labor market, and the Commission will host the Code Week (October 11-17) this year and is inviting to organize events all across Europe.
Ambassadors for each country have been selected to engage with local communities and organizations. Schools, companies and NGOs are asked to organize events within this campaign.
Activities could be manifold: coding events for kids/teenagers/adults, workshops in local schools organized by coders; coding workshops hosted by businesses and non-profit organizations, fun coding challenges for students, etc.
