Event Details

Nesta and Nominet Trust with support from futurelab at NFER are launching a new programme to support young people to be active producers rather than passive consumers of the digital world both inside and outside of formal education.

This event will bring together over 80 leading professionals from education, industry and policy to discuss the growing interest and debate around the digital skills that young people need for the future and to influence the design of our new programme.

We think supporting young people to be confident digital makers extends beyond the recent debates about computer science into arts, engineering and design, and includes supporting young people to create businesses, creatively express themselves and engage with local communities. It involves activities as diverse as programming and developing websites, apps and games to creatively using data, or building digital devices and services.


The workshop and discussion event will be facilitated by Jon Drori, a leading expert on technology to encourage innovation.

You’ll find out more about our programme and shape its design, hear from leading organisations such as Mozilla Foundation who will be running a hack at the event, network with others and find out ways in which you and your organisation can get involved.

Please note registration with tea and coffee will open at 9:30am, with the event starting at 10am and lunch at 1pm.

Hosted by:

Nesta is the UK’s foundation for innovation. We were set up to help turn great ideas into successful innovations that change lives for the better.

Nominet Trust is the UK-based social investor which advocates the imaginative use of digital technologies to improve lives and communities.
