Unite-IT LLP project awards four good practices
ZAGREB – Four projects in digital empowerment through eSkills and media literacy received high recognition during the Telecentre Europe Annual Conference (TEAC14). The European Students’ Union (ESU) participated in the assessment of the 37 European projects that were reviewed before the conference, as part of the so-called Unite-IT network.
Those selected projects were from Hungary, Spain, Republic of Macedonia and Romania. They were awarded for their contribution to the following aims by developing eSkills for digital inclusion:
- Education, training and certification
- Youth employability
- Vulnerable groups at risk of exclusion
- Gender equality
The winners received award statuettes and certificates. Part of the prize included the trip and accommodation at the TEAC14 Conference in Zagreb, Croatia.
The Unite-IT project is co-funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union. Its goal is to “create an online community where members collect and share best practice in the fields of digital skills, adult education and ICT, work, social inclusion and social cohesion.”
Unite-IT network wishes to make its Digital Inclusion Award the annual recognition to organisations and trainers who work in the field and who create, often with very small resources, innovative ways to bring digital opportunities and skills to people in their communities.
