Save the date: EU Code Week 10-18 October 2015 – Bringing ideas to life with #codeEU

The third edition of EU Code Week will take place 10-18 October 2015. Millions of children, young adults, adults, parents, teachers, entrepreneurs and policymakers will again come together in events and classrooms across Europe to learn to create with code.

The idea is to show how you can bring ideas to life with code, to make programming more visible, demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn. If you are a school, a kid, a coder, a young adult, a parent, teacher, a business – now is the time to start planning your Code Week event and put it on the codeweek.eu map.

EU Code Week is a grass-root movement run by volunteers who promote coding in their countries as Code Week Ambassadors. The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda. Last year more than 150,000 people participated in 4,200 coding events in 36 countries in Europe and beyond.

How can you participate in EU Code Week?

  • Kids/teenagers/adults can participate in coding events and organise their own events to show others how you create with code.
  • Coders can organise workshops in local schools, hack spaces or community centres
  • Teachers who code can hold coding classes, share their lessons plans, organise workshops for colleagues
  • Teachers who don’t code can organise seminars or invite parents or students to teach each other coding
  • Parents can encourage their kids to participate in a coding workshop
  • Businesses and non-profit organisations can host coding workshops, lend their staff as coaches in a “back-to-coach” action, organise fun coding challenges for students or offer sponsorship for coding events
  • Everyone who participates in a coding activity can tell us about their experience and inspire others!
