What we do as an organization (100-word description)
Telecentre-Europe is a European non-for-profit organisation (NGO) and a member based association with a central office in Brussels, Belgium.
We represent publicly funded telecentres/telecentre networks, ICT learning centres, adult education centres and libraries across Europe where children and adults can access the Internet, learn the latest digital skills and keep up to date with technology and community developments. We coordinate a number of projects, programmes and campaigns that empower people through ICT by finding new paths to employment, community life, relevant information and staying in touch with friends and family. All our members and partners believe that Information and Communication technology has an enormous potential to combat social exclusion and poverty.
What ICT or e-skills training programs does my organization offer (if any)?
Telecentre-Europe aspires to play a prominent role in getting Europeans digitally savvy by motivating telecentres and other NGOs in the field to continue training people in basic and advanced digital skills and opening them up to opportunities.
