Digital literacy stands as a cornerstone in Sweden’s educational landscape, and the ICDL Foundation plays a crucial role in achieving this essential competency. The National Digitalisation Strategy for the School System in Sweden, an integral part of the national digitalization strategy, emphasizes the paramount importance of digital skills, particularly for children, students, and young people.

Aligned with the European Union’s DigComp framework, the ICDL Foundation actively contributes to Sweden’s digital literacy objectives. The main objective of the Swedish strategy is to create extensive opportunities for digitalization, ensuring a high level of digital skills that promote knowledge development, equal opportunities, and access to technology.

ICDL’s internationally recognized certification programs, facilitated by ICDL Sweden, empower individuals to demonstrate their digital proficiency on a global scale. By integrating these programs into the national educational framework, ICDL Foundation supports Sweden’s commitment to fostering digital competence. As Sweden strives to advance its national digitalization strategy, the collaboration with ICDL becomes instrumental in realizing the overarching goals of creating a digitally literate and empowered society.
