UNESCO is responsible for coordinating international cooperation in education, science, culture and communication. UNESCO's YouthMobile Initiative builds on the experience of many worldwide initiatives that introduce young people to computer science programming (learning-to-code) and problem solving (coding-to-learn). It also seeks to build on experiences targeting young women who are vastly underrepresented in this field. Finally it builds on the consideration that for millions of young people, the smartphone in their pocket is a very powerful computer, it will be their only computer, and they use it for nearly every aspect of their lives: communicating, learning, taking pictures, and playing games. With this new initiative, UNESCO and its partners strive to provide young people with the high-level skills and confidence to develop, promote, and sell locally relevant mobile apps that solve local issues of sustainable development and provide employment.

Galway Education Centre is one of a network of 21 Education Centres under the remit of the Department of Education & Skills in Ireland. The core work of the Centre is the provision of continuing professional development (CPD) for the education community in the Galway region. Each school year the centre organises a programme of courses, conferences, communities of practice and IT training to support newly identified researched needs. The centre also focuses on creating opportunities for young people in Engineering, IT, Robotics, Science, Entrepreneurship, Mathematics as well as The Arts. The model we have developed to achieve this involves genuine partnerships with industry and other education partners to create programmes that will benefit the next generation. This involves building teams to work on projects with companies such as SAP, Medtronic, EA Games, HP, Accenture, LEGO Education, Microsoft, Dell, Intel, SOS Ventures and SketchUp.
