07 May ALL DIGITAL launches a new Manifesto for enhancing digital competences across Europe
07 May, 2021
The digital transformation and topic of digital skills has never been more visible in EU policy and actions, including the EU’s Digital Strategy, the 2030 Digital Compass, and Digital Education Action Plan. The new ALL DIGITAL Manifesto sets out key principles and recommendations on how to maximise the impact of these actions and includes specific calls to action for the Commission, Member States, and stakeholders.
ALL DIGITAL represents more than 25,000 digital competence centres across the EU, and the Manifesto reflects the needs and perspective of digital skills educators, trainers, and learners. Our hope is that the Manifesto will support dialogue, implementation, and co-operation to deliver Europe’s digital future.
The manifesto includes key principles and recommendations under 5 main areas:
- The education and training offer
- Access to education and training
- Quality of education and training
- A European Approach to Digital Competence
- Sustainability and Development
On 6 May 2021, ALL DIGITAL organised a launch event to present the Manifesto, introduce its topics and themes, and confirm our commitment and actions towards enhancing digital competences across Europe. Over 80 representatives of ALL DIGITAL member organisations, partners, and stakeholders joined the online event to learn about the updated Manifesto, how it was perceived by stakeholders from different sectors and share there feedback.
In general, the new Manifesto had a very positive response, and all speakers expressed their support of the Manifesto’s key principles and recommendations and assured of their commitment to cooperate towards achieving the outlined objectives.
