Coworking is growing in the Catalan Network of ICT Points. This new way of working has attracted the interest of some points of the Catalan network of telecentres and they are spreading the new model based on collaboration and synergies between workers.
One of them is an ICT point in the City of Girona “Emprèn Girona”. “Emprèn Girona” accompanies and advises entrepreneurs who have a business idea and want to implement it. They spawn on regular workshops and conferences related to team management, business presence on the Internet or legal issues. Within this cycle, a talk on coworking opportunities has been presented.

During the 2012 edition of the Catalan “Connecta’t” program, 900 citizens were trained. The program reached a very wide range of the population in 24 municipalities of Catalonia (Spain) and was aimed to promote the digital literacy of the unemployed in order to facilitate their search for a job.
A total of 2145 hours of teaching were given, spread over 143 training modules (A: Digital Literacy, and B: Employment Guidance). All training took place at the facilities of 36 telecenters of the Catalan Network of ICT Points and at the venues of other partners such as libraries or youth information points.
A video report (subtitled in Spanish and Catalan) collects the impressions of various actors who participated in the project while evaluating the impact of the program on the territory.
