Get Online Week 2017

The European Get Online Week is an annual digital empowerment campaign that engages and encourages people to use technology and the Internet with confidence and provide them with skills allowing them to benefit from the world of online opportunities.

Supported by corporations, NGOs & public authorities, the campaign is organized each year in March by Telecentre Europe (TE), an umbrella organisation that represents European networks of ICT learning centres.

Since its take-off in 2010, the Get Online Week campaign has reached more than 900.000 Europeans in more than 20.000 learning centres across Europe. Thanks to the campaign, more than 150.000 people have used the Internet for the very first time.

In 2017, Get Online Week is organized during 27 March – 2 April and challenges Europeans to learn, participate, share and create through thousands of events and activities tackling the digital transformation and its effects.

The campaign activities, trainings, and events will address the following themes:

  • Cybersecurity: use technology and the internet safely, manage your (digital) identity
  • eServices: learn to keep up with eServices (eGovernment, eBanking, eHealth, eCommerce)
  • Employment and entrepreneurship: learn new skills for jobs and for starting businesses

In 2017, all campaign partners and stakeholders will use the I-LINC platform to share, connect and learn from each other. I-LINC is a stakeholder platform on digital skills towards employability and entrepreneurship, that will host Get Online Week updates and interactions.
