Belgian Multiplier Event

On 21 June 2016 in Brussels, the inaugural Coding for Young People multiplier event was organised by the Digital Leadership Institute, Brussels-based partner to the CYP project, as an official side-event of the first-ever Digital Festival in Europe. The event included a best practices roundtable on Coding for Young People in Europe and an Android coding workshop for young people.

At this event targeting students, educators, administrators and policy-makers, expert panelists led a discussion on best practices in coding for youth from across Europe. The roundtable was followed by an Android smartphone coding workshop for young people which was also open to members of the public.
