Seit Weihnachten 2018 unterstützen wir die Initiative „Jugend hackt. Mit Code die Welt verbessern.“ Dieses Programm fördert Jugendliche – besonders Mädchen und andere junge Menschen, die sonst nicht so einfach Zugang zu Technik bekommen – und begeistert sie für´s Programmieren. „Jugend hackt“ ermöglicht jungen Menschen eine breite, offene Teilhabe an einer zunehmend digital vernetzten Welt.
