On Saturday 2nd February will be the fourth Digital ACE event, to be held at Beau Sejour, Guernsey, 12pm to 5pm, with a rolling programme of talks and activities for young people and adults throughout.
This free event is aligned with the successful annual event, Safer Internet Day. It will provide guidance on online safety and security and also showcase the many areas that digital touches our lives in a very positive way. Digital ACE is about providing people with an environment that can feed and support their Aspirations, providing people with the inspiration and tools to Create new things, and to Empower us all to learn, discover and be safe in our amazing digital world.
The event is kindly sponsored by Mourant, Airtel Vodafone and The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner and organised by The Digital Greenhouse & Online Safety Committee.
With over 15 different companies and agencies currently involved and more to be confirmed in the coming weeks, Digital Ace 2019 is set to be the biggest yet including an exciting student competition being announced shortly.
Lucy Kirby, Head of Digital for Economic Development, and event coordinator for the Online Safety committee, said “ Digital ACE has grown 10 fold in four years, with well over 3,000 people attending last year, showing just how important events focusing on online safety and the exponential growth of technology are to both the community and business. We are particularly pleased to welcome the University of the 3rd Age to Digital ACE, who will be providing support specifically to our older generation with digital skills and cyber security.
Matthew Parker a volunteer for Safe and Secure Online and one of the organisers said "Building on last year’s successful event, Digital ACE 2019 is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. Again tying in with safer internet day the key message of which this year is "Together for a better internet". We all have a part to play in helping to educate children and others about being safe online and we will again help educate and inform children and their parents and carers on what they should do whilst giving everyone access to some amazing digital opportunities.”
Tracey Moore, chair of the Guernsey Online Safety committee, added “I would encourage every family to visit Digital Ace. There will be lots of opportunities to see and try exciting new technology as well hearing key messages about how to help you and your family safe online.”
