In 2023 EU Code Week will take place between 7 and 22 October.
Learning to code helps us make sense of the rapidly changing world around us. Join millions of fellow organisers and participants to inspire the development of coding and computational thinking skills in order to explore new ideas and innovate for the future.
In 2021, 4 million people in more than 80 countries around the world took part in EU Code Week.
The average participant was 11 years old and 49% of participants in 2021 were women or girls. 88% of EU Code Week events took place in schools, which show that efforts to empower teachers during the 2021 campaign have been successful.
EU Code Week 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. In the Digital Education Action Plan the Commission especially encourages schools to join the initiative.
The goal is to help more young people to master the basics of coding and computational thinking.
