Get Online Week is an international digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation.
Beginning in the UK in 2007 and introduced to Australia in 2018, Get Online Week is a week-long annual celebration that sees thousands of events take place across Australia and the UK, giving everyone the chance to find the support they need to improve their digital skills.
Last year, more than 700 Get Online Week events were held across Australia – in person and virtually – helping people get more out of life online.
This year’s Get Online Week campaign takes place from 18-24 October 2021.
Last year’s campaign responded to the needs of our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We supported people to connect with friends and family, stay safe online, learn how to better use their devices, find reliable health information and apply for work online.
Over 700 community organisations around Australia held online or COVID-safe face-to-face events for people with low digital skills, depending on the public gathering restrictions and health advice in their location.
We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to safely participate in our digital world and no one should be left behind. Through the Be Connected Network in Australia, events and activities took place in hundreds of communities to spread the Get Online Week message.
Now’s the time to get online.
