What is Race Online 2012
Briefly, Race Online 2012 is a charitable organisation whose aim is to make UK the first nation in the world where everyone can use the web. The BBC (and other partners) are joining forces with Race Online 2012 to encourage everyone to teach people in their local communities how to use the web. When the clocks in the UK go back on October 30th, if you know anything about the web, even if it's just how to type in a url to find a website, this is your chance to show someone else do that.
Several Race Online partners are involved in various ways. For examaple, the NHS Choices will demonstrate an online 'life check' tool which shows people how to get a health MOT on the net. Mecca bingo clubs will also be holding internet taster sessions from 10am to 1am (on October 31st).
How you could be involved in Race Online 2012
Details are below if you or anyone you know would like to teach someone else to use the web, or if you know someone: an elderly neighbour, a member of your family, or anyone else who could benefit from learning how to use the Internet.
If you wish to make contact with someone locally, why not leave a comment below stating your city in the UK, what you would like to do, or if you would like to learn. I'm sure we can all pool together to give an hour of our time. After all, we're not losing an hour if the clocks are going back, right?
