Well, we weren’t awarded first prize in the Community Category of the Meet and Code Awards (that went to the fantastic DENSA Coop Soc project in Italy) but we’re still proud that our ‘Five Days of Code’ event, delivered in October 2020, reached the Awards finals as the only UK finalist.
Meet and Code helps non-profits organize grassroots coding events supporting communities of all sizes and making Europe more digital starting at the local level. The initiative strives for global change and work within the framework of EU Code Week and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This international dimension to our work is important to us, and reaching the finals is testament to the skills, innovation and dedication of our staff and to the positive response of young people in the Paisley area to informal learning opportunities which develop both technical skills and personal skills.
Well done all, we’re proud of you!
