Get Online Day 2010
1-7 March 2010

IAN Telecentar joined the Telecentre-Europe action planning to celebrate the eSkills Week 2010 through a pan-European initiative focused to bring people online in all European countries. The initiative called Get Online Day will be coordinated by Telecentre-Europe and implemented with the assistance of national partners through telecentres. participated in the Telecentre-Europe Summit 2009 from 14 to 15 of October in Istanbul, Turkey. The summit brought together around 90 leaders from NGOs, public and corporate sector as well as the European Commission around the challenges of broadening the information society to almost 300 million Europeans excluded today. The event had a number of high-level keynote speakers, and this was an opportunity for telecentre leaders and activists to meet, exchange experiences and shape the future plans for the network. Fundamental themes & barriers that determine e-inclusion and the success of NGOs working in this area were tackled. Several NGOs presented initiatives on these topics already running successfully around Europe that will now likely grow to other countries.

The e-Skills Week campaign aims to raise awareness of the growing demand of highly skilled ICT practitioners and users within the industry. Telecentre-Europe is already a stakeholder in the eSkills Week Campaign , coordinated by DIGITALEUROPE and European Schoolnet.
