Programme: Europe for Citizens
Identifier: 614897-CITIZ-1-2019-2-FR-CITIZ-NT
Title: EUROPEAN DIGITAL CITIZENS
Summary
EUDIGIT aims to support the fight against the digital divide suffered by many European citizens. Yet despite public efforts, the facts are alarming: 169 million Europeans do not have basic computer skills. This acts as a real brake to slow down the fight against social exclusion. This backwardness creates differences between citizens, big cities and villages, endangers the principle of regional cohesion and may damage the feelings of belonging to the 'EU project'. This fact has been noted by all EUDIGIT's cities which express their concern about the link between digital exclusion and EU citizenship specially among disadvantaged people (eg. 2018 Marseille White Paper Part D.1). Digital divide actually acts as an accelerator of social exclusion for not enough connected, trained and informed people who are missing 'the bus of progress'. Even when 'connection is good', many citizens show poor interest for European matters; communication from the EU and Member States comes mainly online with no close contact with citizens. This stake requires all public players to be involved in order to tackle social issues that hamper the design of 'smart cities for all'. On the basis of ground-level states of play, EUDIGIT explores how cities can become actively involved in reducing the digital divide via policies and an evolution of public services tailored 'with and for all citizens', alongside a better communication with them. Objectives of the project:- Strengthening EU citizenship and citizens awareness,- Contributing to reduce the digital gap in cities,- Co-building digital policies with citizens.Scheduled activities:- 7 events,- 25 workshops with NGOs and citizens,- Setting-up of EUDIGIT's Steering Committees with NGOs and Citizens' Committees to co-build policies in all cities.Expected outcomes:- 5 seminars' E-books, - A declaration for cooperation between partner cities,- Digital participation surveys,- Target audience: 520 people; 30,000 indirectly.
