This year Stiftung Digitale Chancen (SDC) will focus on the topics of digital inclusion, employability and coding for children.

Digital inclusion as a topic that concerns our whole society will be addressed during a planned fair trade under the motto “Digital Media”. There we intend to organize workshops both for families and for senior citizens. Further information about the fair will be published soon. According to the motto “Find your strengths” SDC will organize workshops for young people aged 14 to 25. During the workshops the participants will learn how to use and benefit from the social network YouRock.Jobs ( by creating their profiles, taking pictures and videos that demonstrate their strengths to possible employers.

After the success of the coding workshop in GOW15, SDC will again invite young pupils to learn about coding and to built their own programmes. Further information about the coding workshop will be published soon. With the “Barometer Online Collaboration Skills” of the project Online4EDU ( people will test their online collaboration skills and knowledge during the GOW16 and receive direct results and recommendations for improvement.
