Digipolis is an inter-municipal ICT organization (governmental, but strictly non-commercial) for the two largest cities in Flanders(Belgium), Ghent and Antwerp.

What digital skills training or activities do you or does your organization offer (if any)?
Digipolis is charged with the responsibility of digital support, development and promotion.

Building on the Gent2020 mission of the City of Ghent - “Ghent, a creating city, a pioneer in the development of a sustainable, solidary and open society by uniting all creative forces” - Digipolis is managing a collaboration project with various local stakeholders (including all public libraries) to provide free ICT access points in the whole City of Ghent focusing on disadvantaged neighborhoods and groups. At this time we have built up 94 spaces where people can use a computer and internet for free. In most of our locations we have volunteers who help starting ICT users with their first steps and answer questions when visitors have a problem. All is free for visitors because most of them are part of at-risk groups.

These telecentres aim to be approachable and easily accessible for people from all…
