Digital for Good

International Conference

Event Slider

The International Conference “Digital for Good” intends to present the state of the art regarding the digital agenda and its impact on the social sector but also to discuss the future trends of an area which is evolving very quickly and for which many social agents are not yet prepared. The new challenges resulting for this moving digital environment should generate transformation of the organizations themselves and also of the approaches, methodologies and tools underlying social responses and the promotion of public good and well-being.

The objective of the conference is therefore to raise awareness of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and social agents and activists to the impact of digital innovation on the way they work and call to action to ensure that the third sector shall be at the forefront of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

A meaningful set of experts (academia, IT, CSOs) from Europe and the U.S. will provide insights on the impact of the new digital tools on the social area – and particularly on civic participation and human rights, on education, on health and inclusion and on environment – and on the associated key ethical and regulation issues.
