Consumer classroom is celebrating its 4th anniversary!

We are in March! It is THE important month for Consumers around the world.

On the 14 th of March, Consumer Classroom celebrates its fourth birthday. During these years, Consumer Classroom has brought together a community of 31 423 registered users, including 18 652 teachers, who have created more than 1700 lessons thanks to its online tools.

The 15 th of March is the World Consumer Rights Day . This year the event’s theme is “ Building a Digital World Consumers can Trust ”,

WCRD is the opportunity to promote the basic rights of all consumers, for demanding that those rights are respected and protected, and for protesting the market abuses and social injustices which they can face.

The 15 th of March is the European Consumer Day. For this edition, the European Consumer Day will focus on The Digital Single Market: How does it benefit consumers?
This event is the opportunity to bring together consumers, policy makers and IT expert not only to weigh in on the issues affecting digital consumers but also to shape the European dialogue about the Digital Single Market.

In order to cover the topic and have a good moment, many questions will be put to the participants. For example: What are the expected impacts of today’s digital transformations on our future life? Are we aware of the pitfalls and risks when sharing our data online or feeding big data? How will Artificial Intelligence change production and consumption? How can digital technology effectively support the transition towards a more sustainable economy? How does a digitally-supported collaborative economy tie in with consumers' rights as we know them?

If you are interested in these topics, take a look at our resources on Consumer Choice and Consumer Protection.
