Event Description

Europe Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.

The idea is to make programming more visible, to show young, adults and elderly how you bring ideas to life with code, to demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn.

The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda Europe.

EU Code Week is run by volunteers. One, or several, Code Week Ambassadors coordinate the initiative in their countries, but everyone can organise their own code event and add it to the codeweek.eu map.

In 2015, 46 countries took part in EU Code Week – all EU member states plus Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Albania, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey events took place in Australia, Belarus, Bosnia and Hercegovina, China, South Korea, Moldova, Morocco, Taiwan, Tunisia, Ukraine and the United States.

If your country is not involved yet, you can volunteer as a Code Week ambassador – or organise an event and put it on the map.


Become a part of Code Week by organizing an event. Make a difference by inspiring and motivating others.

Anyone is welcome to organize an event. Just pick a topic and a target audience and add your event to the map. You can even use our toolkit for organizers to get started.

If you need help or have a question you can get in touch with EU Code Week Ambassadors in your country.


Coding is for everyone. Try something new and discover the fun of coding by joining an event near you.

There are plenty of events for any age and a variety of topics. Participation is free of charge and there are no prerequisites.

There's also a list of resources to help you get started with coding online right now.


If you know people who would be willing to organize an event, let them know about Code Week.

We're on Twitter as @CodeWeekEU, on Facebook and we use the #codeEU hashtag.
