The Dutch Codeweek Team

Together we, Pauline, Joyce and Maartje are the Dutch Codeweek team. We believe that coding is an essential skill children and youngsters need in becoming well-informed digital citizens. In 2015 we organized Codepact with several partners, such as Microsoft and Vodafone-Ziggo. Both throughout the year and in Codeweek we raised awareness on coding-skills in education. Codepact is now part of the Dutch Safer Internet Centre, an initiative of the European Commission. Our Digital Champion is Tineke Netelenbos, chair of ECP| Platform for the Information Society and former Secretary of State for Education. She is a strong believer in the importance of digital skills for all.
