2017: For GOW17, ComNet will implement webinars on the topic of Cybersecurity and eServices and promote tools for Employability

Foundation for Community Network for the  third time was the Hungarian National Partner for the Get Online Week.

In 2017,  ComNet conducted webinars on different topics. There was a webinar on the topic of Cybersecurity, more precisely in connection with how to recognize fake news; Cybersecurity for youth and teachers – how to address digital generations; and on the topic of eServices – how to offer 1% of personal income tax for the civil society.

ComNet involved telecentres from their network – from different regions of Hungary – in order to provide computers for participants who want to join the webinars but cannot join from home. The most active telecentres could win valuable presents: the telecentre to promote these webinars via Facebook the most successfully, the telecentres to organise events and provide computers for participants for webinars and the telecentre to involve the most participants in the webinars.

The webinars were also shared on ComNet’s YouTube channel.

On the topic of Employment and Entrepreneurship, ComNet promoted useful tools, such as Skillage or YouRock through our telecentre network and partner organisations.

ComNet promoted GOW nationwide with leaflets in their events, among telecentres and their partner organisations. They also promoted their GOW campaign video which had been made the year before.

With the campaign ComNet planned to reach 1,500 people.
