Ensuring a Digital Transformation that Leaves No One Behind

02 November 2022

Building on its work in the framework of the Digital Transformation Cluster of the Civil Society Convention on the Future of Europe in 2021 (see full cluster recommendation paper) ECAS is carrying out, in collaboration with its members, interactive, a co-creation event series “Ensuring a Digital Transformation that Leaves No One Behind”.

Each event includes an introduction by a national expert, an outline of EU’s Digital Policies and main developments in the areas of Digital Democracy, Digital Economy, Digital Education, Digital Safeguards, and Digital Rights, the main challenges towards inclusion Civil Society has identified and a structured questionnaire with closed and open-ended questions, through which participants propose solutions and engage with EU policy. The (anonymous) responses are presented live and feed into the event discussion. Everyone can take part in the conversation. To ensure more citizens can take part in this exercise, our events are hybrid.
