We have some new and exciting developments in store:

This year, Amazon has upped its partnership to become a headline sponsor for Meet and Code along with SAP. Now, Meet and Code - which is organized by Haus des Stiftens and TechSoup Europe - becomes the biggest collaborative impact initiative for digital education in Europe. 
As part of this sponsorship, you will have the opportunity to be inspired through webinars and train-the-trainer sessions kicking off in July. Keep an eye on our blogs, newsletters, and social media pages to stay updated. 

How we are collaborating for sustainable goals: 

Our vision is big! And we would like to collaborate with NPOs who share the same vision.  
Whether you're looking to teach coding basics to beginners or delve into more advanced topics like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Meet and Code is here to support you. 
Aside from providing funding, we have also put together a Meet and Code Inspiration Library where you can access cool topics and ideas for your events. You can also head over to our Stories Section to see previous events organised across Europe for inspiration. 

Let’s stay connected:
