Ambassadors

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.
