Digital Week in Latvia
Digital Week is a national annual information and awareness raising campaign in Latvia promoting digital skills and digital transformation. It is coordinated by the Latvian Information and Communication Technology Association (LIKTA) in cooperation with the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development (VARAM).
The main objective of the Digital Week in Latvia is to raise awareness of the importance of digital skills among the wider society, as well as to provide practical support for the acquisition of new digital skills for different target audiences. The Digital Week in Latvia is organised in partnership with European All Digital week.
The Digital Week takes place in Latvia for 12 years already. Since its start, more than 5.500 face-to-face and online events have been organised, succeeding in bringing together more than 350.000 Latvians.
The Digital Week annual event includes both central high level National Coalition member events and debates, which can be followed live on the internet, as well as events taking place in all Latvian regions: schools, libraries, non-governmental organisations, municipalities and businesses. It is also possible to test your digital skills via different self-assessment tests and digital skills competitions.
More than 230 partners amongst which ICT companies, ministries, public authorities, NGOs and regional coordinators (municipalities, libraries, schools, adult education centres) took part in the 2021 week organisation.
