Get Online Week 2020: How to get involved

Now's the time to help others get online.

Get Online Week is Good Things Foundation's international digital inclusion campaign. This year's Get Online Week will take place from 19 - 25 October 2020.

We're looking for organisations to host events, either face-to-face or online, that help people in our communities make the most of the internet.

In this webinar we will talk through:

  • The theme for this year's Get Online Week
  • How community organisations can get involved in the campaign
  • Ideas for online and face-to-face events
  • Being mindful of COVID-19 restrictions in your area when planning your participation in the campaign
  • How to apply for a $1,000 grant to help organise your event.
