ALL DIGITAL Summit 2017

Theme: Digital Skills for Social Innovation

Date: 4-5 October 2017

Location: Barcelona, Spain

In its tenth year, ALL DIGITAL will return to its birthplace, Barcelona, to organise the 10th annual conference under the theme of Digital Skills for Social Innovation on 4-5 October, 2017. The event will be held at the CaixaForum in Barcelona and hosted by the Spanish member El Teb Association in collaboration with Fundación Esplai and Generalitat of Catalonia.

The ALL DIGITAL Summit 2017 will bring together leaders from digital competence networks and organisations working to enhance digital skills to share and learn from each other.

It will provide an opportunity to explore a range of digital social innovations in developing competences that citizens, organisations, and communities need to embrace to reap the benefits of the digital society. These innovations include mobile learning, coding for digital inclusion, collaborative opportunities on the social internet and many others.

Participants will discover and discuss the changing role of digital competence centres (telecentres), and how they can be enriched with an open approach to innovation. The mandate of digital competence centres has been to empower citizens in developing their digital, social, entrepreneur and employability skills. Nowadays, the centres becoming more innovative spaces than ever before, developing and applying new learning strategies and approaches, expanding their scope to include co-creation, mobile learning, coding, use of open data, digital manufacturing tools and much more. The centres offer citizens new tools that empower them to become ‘prosumers’ and to co-generate content, knowledge and new collaborative opportunities (in both social and labour fields) within the framework of the Social Internet. They help to include citizens in the labour market and to create new circular, collaborative, and cooperative economies. The delegates will explore and share these new approaches in a variety of discussion groups, workshops, and plenary sessions
