The first telecentres were founded 15 years ago in Centre Europe. Most of the founders play a significant role in the Centre European and worldwide telecentre movement up to this day.
Let's seek them to know who they are, what did they do for the telecentres in the past and what are they doing for us right now.

Indeed we were the last ones to leave!!! Telecentre-Europe organised the workshop "What's next for the 292,000,000?" at the end of the eInclusion conference in Vienna. We had some very, very interesting discussions and we were struggling to finish on time with what we thought was really the most important theme of the conferenece: what will we have to do in order to ensure that all those who are not connected today get a real opportunity to participate in our knowledge… Continue

it is completely inspiring to see the MASSIVE amount of work that has been done over the last few days by our dedicated team of bloggers, web reporters, and the team on the stand. I am completely in awe of what you have done. The impact of our presence was significant and I had a number of people come and tell me that we were the "discovery" that they had hoped they would find in Vienna. This was EXACTLY
what we had hoped to achieve, but it was far, far better than we had… Continue

In this workshop we had the intervention of:
- Stefano Kluzer
- Ed Klute
- Lora Pappas
- Andrea Cortinois
- Pedro Aguilera
They all tried to explain how important is the relation between migration and inclusion. Nowadays migration is a really important phenomenon in our societies and we have to deal with it. It´hasn´t to be a bad phenomenom. We have to learn how to plan our actions so we can benefit from it.
We had the opportunity of taking… Continue

The Conference has finished. We are all back home but it´s not finished. We´ve learnt lots of things. We knew lots of projects and people who look for the same aim as us: inclusion. We´ve realized that we have to continue working. The young reporters have made a big effort and they won´t forget this experience. But we have to continue working and developing... This conference must continue in time...

Web reporters are safely home. e-Inclusion? A tremendously exciting experience! Unique, first hand encounter with policy makers and ordinary (or perhaps extra-ordinary) folk who make e-Inclusion happen. Many thanks to Nick Batey, who invited us! What a priviledge! Great work done by Gabi and Ian and Telecentre Europe team. Excellent support from Sylvie and Melissa! Lize, what would this have been withouth your encouraging friendship?! Our Polish,… Continue

The workshop was organized by telecentre-europe and when I came in I saw many known faces of people that are already member of telecentre-europe, but there were some new faces from Sweden, China, Israel, Croatia and Portugal.
Ian Clifford, co-chair of telecentre-europe was leading the session and first showed a video that was also showed during the telecentre-europe launch

It's time for a quick conclusion. I believe e-Inclusion conference had a legitimate focus on e-Government, disability, and ageing well issues. By default, that made the event a pretty conservative one, aimed at taking stock and consolidating rather than attempting to move things forward. But sometimes strange
ideas can be more useful than straight
ideas. As such, the conference may have missed out on a very important and stimulating… Continue

The session I attended this morning (with my wife, who joined me for the day) was thought-provoking. Femke Snelting, Belgium artist, took a fresh look at gender issues relating to ICT skills. Her research shows considerable (political) inequality between men and women in this regard. I will quote her only on women blogging, because I think it offers an interesting window into the heart of the problem. Femke found that 46% of bloggers were women. However, in terms of influence only about 16%… Continue

I thought that is good to look into matter from different points of view. I’m not keen on technological items, but I want to be open-mind person.
Standardization of web accessibility
is one way to resolve e-Inclusion. This issue is most significant for disabled. Barrier of using electronic devices adjusted only for healthy people is for disabled impossible to cross.
How to change this… Continue

I went to the conference about economics of e-Inclusion because I’m studying economy and I’m interested in it.
What can I say after this event… I’m highly disappointed about it
. I thought there would be more issues connected with macroeconomic aspects of e-inclusion. I mean how digital illiteracy influences countries income (GDP
- Gross Domestic Product,… Continue

The big moment finally arrived! At 16:00 our booth in Vienna was literally overwhelmed with people that were curious to find out what telecentre-europe is about.
