Important notice!

Dear Pledgers and Pledge Viewer guests,

As of mid-October, the Pledge viewer tool will have a new ‘home’ on the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform. All the content from the Pledge Viewer will be migrated to the Platform by then. In the meantime, the content remains publicly available in this site (Pledges, Initiatives etc.), while the user registration, login and the features to manage your Pledges have been disabled. We will update this page once the features are available again on the Platform.

Stay tuned for the new Pledges initiative launch!


The Pledge Viewer is the home of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition for making, viewing and managing pledges and membership. Register to apply to become a member and join hundreds of organisations who demonstrate their role in closing the digital skills gap in Europe.

Organisations are encouraged to take the next step and send a clear signal of their commitment to equip Europeans – citizens, the labour force, ICT specialists and those in the education sector - with the skills they need for life and work in the digital age by making a pledge.

Pledges are commitments made by organisations, big and small, from the private, public and third sector, to go above and beyond the normal scope of their activities and make a direct contribution to reducing the digital skills gap facing Europe today. Take part and commit to providing skills training and placements, facilitating access to digital skills development opportunities or driving awareness of digital skills challenges and opportunities.

What is a pledge?

A pledge is the commitment to perform an action which promotes the acquisition of digital skills amongst Europeans. Specifically, a pledge:

  • Progresses digital skills within the four key pillars of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition
  • Acts beyond the normal scope of an organisation’s activities
  • Provides measurable outcomes for a defined set of beneficiaries
  • Is provided in good faith and free of conditions to the beneficiaries

Each pledge has a common goal and theme but is made up of one or more initiatives with specific actions, pillars and/or beneficiaries resulting in individual indicators to aid reporting and progress.

Who can pledge?

Any organisation can make a pledge, we receive pledges of all types and scales from small local associations working with specific groups of beneficiaries to large multinationals providing online training modules and certification. Check out some examples of previous pledging organisations in ‘Pledges’.
