Get Online Week

Our annual week-long campaign of digital inclusion.

Get Online Week is our annual digital inclusion campaign being held 14-20 October 2024.

We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to safely participate in our digital world and no one should be left behind. Get Online Week helps people to improve their digital skills through fun, local community events.

Through our network and with the support of our Government and corporate partners, hundreds of communities across Australia get involved every year to spread the Get Online Week message.

Get Online Week is a campaign by Good Things Foundation Australia. Go to www.getonlineweek.com to learn more.
