Monday 22 January 2018 | 08:59 CET | News
Facebook said it will open three new community skills hubs in Spain, Italy and Poland as part of a commitment to train 1 million people and business owners throughout the EU by 2020. The three new community hubs will run in partnership with local organisations, offering training in digital skills, media literacy and online safety to underrepresented groups, said Facebook, adding that the centres will be based on the successful model of its Digitales Lernzentrum in Berlin, which opened last year in partnership with the ReDI School of Digital Integration.
