Thank you Digital Generation Youth for connecting Uviwe to the rest of the world and making us part of the Cities of Learning network.  The partner visit from Project Digital Generation Youth to their centre was insightful and inspiring.  In the past most organisations focused more on computer literacy teaching youth how to use applications in work environments.  Your project highlighted the importance of digital literacy using DigComp 2.1 framework and issuing digital badges as recognition for skills learned.  Uviwe is a great example in promoting digital literacy education and implementation of digital badges in South Africa   

This project is an international collaboration by partners from Vilnius City of Learning, the Eastern Cape Region of Learning, and the Tilburg City of Learning. We aim at exploring how we develop digital literacies and digital skills of young people in our cities and regions. We hope that soon we can bring Cities of Learning to Lagos.
