DigitAll acts to achieve more digital inclusion
DigitAll is a coalition of companies, social organisations and governmental bodies working together for more digital inclusion in Belgium. The ecosystem was set up in 2020 at the initiative of BNP Paribas Fortis. Proximus joined them in June 2021. Together, they are building up a network of companies, governmental bodies, social organisations and experts.
The risk of no longer being able to keep up in our digital society is not something that touches only the vulnerable or elderly. Each and everyone of us can be affected, even our youngsters. We therefore need to act to make sure everyone can be included in the digital society by making it accessible and making sure everybody acquires the necessary skills to be digitally active while being at ease.
We believe that everybody wins in a more digitally inclusive society. That’s why DigitAll strives to achieve a prosperous and inclusive Belgium where everyone has the same opportunities to be able to enjoy the better quality of life and job opportunities that digitalisation brings.
For that purpose we connect people and organisations that want to commit to bringing about a structural change and increasing the impact on digital inclusion in Belgium by means of co-creation and awareness raising, with an open and diverse mindset. We seek solutions for more digital inclusion and are taking steps to build a network of organisations and people who can contribute to this with the aim to create a real community, an ecosystem in which participants share experiences, work together and can use one another’s actions as a lever.
The ecosystem is a coalition of like-minded partners who work together on solutions and wider digital initiatives. Each of us is a digital inclusion ambassador. Together we are putting this important subject on the agenda in our organisations and networks.
