The EU Code Week is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creativity, problem-solving and collaboration through programming and other tech activities.
The idea is to make programming more visible, to show young, adults and the elderly how you bring ideas to life with code, to demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn.
The EU Code Week is an umbrella for numerous coding activities, challenges and training happening throughout Europe. Recent years brought as many as 4.2 million participants implementing 72.000 different actions (in 2019).
The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Young Advisors for the Digital Agenda Europe. The European Commission supports EU Code Week as part of its strategy for a Digital Single Market.
