In Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine, more than 300 m2 of equipped and modular spaces, Orange opens the emblematic side of the program and offers the public a wide selection of digital education patterns completely free of charge.
Orange Digital Center is a free program accessible to everyone to get acquainted with the digital world, develop their skills or seek support in a professional career.
Today, 17% of French people have problems using everyday digital tools, and one in two companies does not have the in-house skills to support the rise of digital practices. Faced with this reality, Orange is launching the Orange Digital Center program to strengthen its digital skills development activities in Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine and throughout France.
This innovative facility is a lever for social and economic development in areas, including rural areas, with the support of local partners, associations, local authorities and town halls.
The Orange Digital Center program brings together all Orange’s activities in favor of digital acculturation under one heading thanks to the active mobilization of Orange’s volunteer employees who are interested in passing on their digital knowledge.
The Orange Digital Center is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, professionals, tradesmen, craftsmen, Orange customers or not. It offers workshops to discover digital tools, games to raise awareness of the good use of digital, FabLab spaces for experimentation, production, prototyping, job creation tomorrow or even conferences and workshops to support women entrepreneurs in their business project.
The system is complemented by a digital platform. The public can look at the agenda of Orange Digital Center events throughout the territory, sign up for workshops or even get online educational solutions.
In addition to Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine, the Orange Digital Center is currently launching 11 other cities in France: 2 in Grenoble, Toulouse and Roubaix, 1 in Schiltigheim, Rennes, Mamoudzou in Mayotte, Saint-Pierre de La Reunion. and Fort-de-France in Martinique. Other sites will add to this list soon.
Partner facilities, mobile or temporary, also host all or part of the Orange Digital Center program in third countries throughout the country.
Fabienne Dulac, Deputy CEO, CEO of Orange France, says: “The launch of the Orange Digital Center is a source of great pride for Orange France. It embodies and reinforces the commitment of the company and its employees, local actors, to making digital technologies accessible to all. The Orange Digital Center, both a place and a national program, is an example of close cooperation in all territories with local authorities and associations with the same goal: to combat digital exclusion.
