Malta has placed first out of 70 countries in the EU’s European Code Week initiative for the third consecutive year.

With 490 coding-based events for children organised last year, Malta held the most events per capita out of the participating countries. It by far surpassed the European Commission’s 50% target, with more than 80% of Maltese schools joining in the initiative. In fact, Malta managed to double the amount of activities held this year, giving a clear indicator of how they took the lead once more.

Held between the 5th and 20th of October, the objective of European Code week is to bring digital skills and innovation to life for citizens across Europe and beyond.

Schools and non-profits, coding clubs and other organisations were invited to host activities that bring the digital language and computational thinking to the forefront of young minds.

This week’s events were supported by The Directorate for Digital Literacy and Transversal Skills, Malta eSkills Foundation, MCAST, Digital Literacy within SFCE, Foundation for ICT Accessibility, Esplora Interactive Science Centre, Malta Libraries , and number of private entities.
