Planned activities

Planned activities are seminars about e-services, hands-on trainings & demonstrations and workshops & introductions to the internet.

All activities will be region-led and will depend on the resources and capacities of PH’s regional partners. The activities will vary from workshops on first click and e-government services to videoconferences and regional conferences or round tables on information society development, as well as special contests for participants. PH and its Tvoy Kurs program will organize a national contest on the best outreach, best media coverage and best story to involve more participants and provide a wide promotion of the campaign.

PH will be responsible for providing training materials for its partners on the public website and for translating all the necessary materials regarding the campaign from Telecentre-Europe into Russian. All the organizations, willing to participate, will apply online and then will be asked to fill in a short report on the range of their activities and media coverage.
