On the occasion of October, the month of computer security, Google and the associations of Euroconsumers in Italy (Altroconsumo), Spain (OCU), Belgium (Test-Achats) and Portugal (Deco Proteste) have joined forces to create “Space Shelter”, a web game designed by the Gamindo platform. The objective of this initiative is to provide individuals with information, tools and specific programs to safely surf the web and, thanks to this, have more fun. The initiative includes a web game set in space that has the dual function of entertaining users and conveying the importance of safe online browsing. While exploring deep space, aspiring astronauts have the opportunity to become true web security experts during their intergalactic journey. 

Alongside the web game, Nonprofits will have the opportunity to enjoy series of free privacy and online security training sessions by TechSoup in 4 countries. 

The webinar content is designed for Non-Profit practitioners and we will give them priority in attending the webinars. In case there are still places available for the online sessions you can gladly sign up. For that, please keep this webpage monitored.

We want to make the webinar content available to a wider audience once the webinars are over, so keep an eye on this webpage or stay in touch with TechSoup to learn more.

At the end of each webinar, you will receive a self-assessment test via email on the webinar topic to test the knowledge and skills you have acquired and do a quick status check on your Nonprofit organization’s protection status. 

How does the self-assessment test work?

You will receive it by email and you can send it to us filled in by email to 

Please note that in order to have access to 2 hours of free support you will have to send us the completed test no later than November 30 at midnight.
