Since 2014, every September, Nantes Digital Week brings the professionals and the general public together around the digital.
In this event and for the second year, the LINKTOGETHER foundation supports Handicamp project organized by Thinkcode association : an event dedicated to the inclusion of people with disabilities via digital. Handicamp project was a candidate for the LINKTOGETHER Foundation's calls for projects in 2017 and 2018, after has been conducted by collaborators and validated by the jury, it received a funding.
Thus, on September 20th, the Handicamp will allow people with disabilities to discover digital through various events :
- « Come Hacker » to learn how to code, hack and understand security issues,
- a HR space to meet companies and get recruitment advice,
- a training and awareness area on adapted digital channels accessible to people with disabilities.
