Digital For Good

Challenges of the digital revolution for the social sector

The technological revolution has changed the way we live and work. The pandemic crisis gave the digital a new role in the social and economic order, obliging citizens and organizations to develop innovative and smart strategies of cooperation.

In this new Next Normal, we are living, the use of tech to promote social innovation can play a key role in terms of scaling up and accessibility processes. It is also reshaping the way we manage projects performance, share data, and measure impact, reinforcing the level of collective trust in society.

Being aware of the fast path of the ongoing digital revolution and its impact on the social sector, in this new context of the post-pandemic era, the Active Citizens Fund Operators of Portugal, Estonia and Malta decided to organize a forum where the latest developments and trends were exchanged to secure a stronger and better prepared civil society in Europe, able to thrive in the digital age and to find together new solutions to the new problems we are facing.

Having taken place last October 4th 2022, the conference combined keynotes and plenary sessions of thought leaders of the sectors (Social Innovation and Digital Agenda) with breakout sessions with a thematic focus on different societal agendas (civic participation and human rights; education; health and inclusion; environment and climate change). Several fruitful and stimulating discussions were lead by high-level experts and IT entrepreneurs from Europe and the U.S.

The executive report is now published for assessment and reference, along with the programme.
