Get Online Week

Good Things Foundation brought Get Online Week to Australia for the first time from 15-21 October 2018.

Get Online Week began in 2007 in the UK as an initiative to bring digital inclusion to national attention. Since then the campaign has grown into a week-long annual celebration, with thousands of events taking place each year, bringing digital skills and know-how to everyone.

Over 750 events were held across Australia in 2018, helping people with limited digital skills make the most of the internet. We worked together with commercial partners, stakeholders in government and community organisations to reach out and encourage people to get involved and #try1thing new online.
