As a result of this belief, CDG Group has supported and begun initiating several activities concerning education as part of its new CSR campaign, with the overall goal being to improve and strengthen the education in Thailand for subsequent generations, as well as to advance the nation forwards.
Beyond our CSR initiatives, we have been providing technologies to aid citizens in times of need, during nationwide crises and disasters, for the wellbeing of Thai citizens, and to promote a sustainable society and environment.
Our social activities put emphasis 2 main areas.
2) Technologies to improve situations during disasters and contingencies
As we enter into a global society, the tool that aids us in doing so is technology. Therefore, it becomes fair to say that the world is entering the digital economy. As technology becomes an ever-evolving, ever-present force in our lives, so does our need to shape the technologies we’re using. Skills such as coding, essentially the language of computers, become a necessary language. Digital professions are playing an important role in driving the global economy, and consequently, will be in great demand in the future labour market. Furthermore, computer engineers who directly study programming, will be significant players in determining the direction of civilization through the creation of technology and innovation. Digital literacy for the young generation is thus tremendously vital.
CDG Group recognizes the importance of education and digital literacy. We want Thai students, and people involved in the education sector to be excited by the prospect of developing these skills, and the power of learning to code – to get them ready for the digital era that is quickly approaching. CDG Group initially launched Code Their Dreams project as a workshop which provides students with basic computer programming knowledge through fun and creative activities. Beginning with students in elementary schools nearby CDG headquarters, we plan for Code Their Dreams to continuously expand to a larger number of schools.
