In between a world class program and a fee structure set up to be inclusive, there are sponsors making it possible.
Worldwide, digital technology provides everyone with the opportunity to grow. This is why Orange has made digital education a top priority of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy.
This commitment can be seen in our projects for Solidarity FabLabs, Digital Schools, workshops, and training for all audiences: customers, employees, early school-leavers and adults without qualifications.
For the youngest children, we have developed #SuperCoders (FR), fun introductory computer-coding and digital creation workshops. This program, supported by 1,200 Orange employee volunteers in around 20 countries, is made possible thanks to Scratch.
Which is why Orange is delighted to be the leading and natural partner of the 2017 International Scratch conference, which brings together the community of code learners. We reaffirm our commitment to contributing together to better prepare young people for the challenges of tomorrow’s world.
Orange hopes you enjoy the conference, with rewarding and inspiring discussions in a spirit of openness and cooperation.
