Digital Skills Week 2023
The theme of the week was "Digital courage through collaboration between organisations and people".
During Digital Skills Week, we discussed how we can all contribute to building a digitally courageous Finland and our own digital everyday lives. This can only be achieved through collaboration between organisations and people.
Digital Skills Week 2022
Citizens' shortcomings in digital skills may slow down or even halt the development of Finnish society. An equal digital future requires the involvement of each organisation and party in the development of digital skills - and this work should be started immediately.
During the week, we focused in a more in-depth manner on the state of Finnish people’s digital skills and on competence development. We discussed how this competence will have an impact on overall Finnish competitiveness now and in the future, and what should be done in different sectors of society to increase competence.
Digital Support Week 2021
Digital Support Week 2021 examined the significance of digital skills as civic skills, and included discussions about high-quality digital services, different digital users and future digital skills.
