Romania has responded for the 10th consecutive year to the challenges of ALL DIGITAL in the pan-European digital inclusion campaign ALL DIGITAL Week 2019! The EOS Foundation from Romania organized this year the ”Hai pe Net!” Campaign with the National Association of Public Libraries in Romania and APDETIC and our library participated for the ninth consecutive year at the "Hai pe net!" campaign 2019.
As in previous years, the ”Hai pe Net!” 2019 Campaign focused on the two priority areas of digital inclusion: first of all, to attract people who never used a computer or the Internet, and secondly to promote online tools to help young people to assess their digital skills and to increase their chances of employment.
In addition to these goals, campaign participants were able to learn about the importance of online security, the importance of web accessibility, and they also developed new IT skills.
Throughout the campaign, in the library and in the educational institutions with which the library has established partnerships, activities have been organized for all those who have never used a computer, a mobile device or the internet. They have learned to navigate on the internet, and by promoting online tools young people have been helped to assess their digital skills and increase their chances of employment and social integration.
The Northern Branch of Medgidia Municipal Library supported in the "Hai on Net!" Edition 2019 the achievement of the following objectives and activities:
Campaign activities also targeted graduates looking for jobs, people with disabilities, people from rural and elderly.
Just like in previous years, we've designed to include digital through the campaign and present the benefits of safe internet surfing, assess IT skills, and develop IT skills and skills for at least 250 community members local, and at the end we managed to do this for a total of 522 participants.
According to recent statistics published by the European Commission, Romania is still ranked the last in Europe in the Index of Society and Digital Economy (DESI 2017). Although connectivity grew well in Romania during 2016, Capital Human Capital, Internet Usage, Digital Technology Integration and Digital Public Services remain among the last in Europe.
Campaign ”Hai pe net 2019!” is part of the pan-European digital inclusion campaign ALL DIGITAL Week 2018, where internet access shows the need for improvement. 44% of European citizens do not have basic digital skills; 37% of the workforce is not ready for digital jobs; 14% of European citizens have never used the internet; 49% of citizens have never used a site to verify the truth of facts or news and because 72% of Europe's citizens believe their work will be replaced by robots.
We thank all the participants, collaborators and partners who supported us in organizing the aforementioned activities and we want to be involved in as many types of digital inclusion programs.
