    WIDE is involved in several local, regional and European projects. Highlight on the most recent one:

    As a pioneer in coding education in Luxembourg we are proud to announce that we are now part of a new Erasmus + project in the field of adult education: « WOW CODE 2 CONFIDENCE »

    In a few words: we organise regular activities around coding. But what are the benefits for our learners and the women we train?

    Beyond technical abilities, how do these newly acquired skills empower women and how does this make them more confident to be creative, to develop employability, or to start their own company ? 

    The kick-off meeting already took place in Sine Mures, Romania, at the end of October.

    On this 20-month journey, we will share best practices with our partners as well as local and international stakeholders.

    Soon you will be able to discover the project logo & Facebook page. We are looking forward to be able to share inspiring stories! The website will be designed by a group of Erasmus + learners in early January.
