Among the tools available to the European Coalition, as well as the respective National Coalitions, are the joint initiatives for digital skills (pledges)
All organizations, businesses and government bodies agree and pledge to undertake joint initiatives to enhance digital skills in Europe. These partnership initiatives for digital skills should have the following characteristics:
They should be harmonized with the four (4) key pillars of the European Coalition (education, training, ICT professionals, citizens)
The initiatives planned and implemented by the various bodies should not be strictly limited to their respective fields. Instead, they should generate high added value to society.
They should provide measurable results for each specific group of beneficiaries.
They should be provided in good faith and without any conditions to beneficiaries.
Such initiatives tend to confirm that the organizations act along with the EU in the effort to provide European citizens with skills that are essential in modern life, work and the digital era in general. They contribute to the full use of the opportunities offered by new technologies for an enhanced European competitiveness, more flexible human resources and a modernized society.
Indicatively, joint initiatives for digital skills could include:
Facilitation of citizens’ access to educational opportunities
Creation of the right conditions to ensure all citizens are offered equal access to the digital era
Actions to raise the awareness of citizens on the opportunities, but also the challenges of digital skills
It is worth mentioning that organizations can participate in joint initiatives regardless of their economic size. However, only proposals submitted by organizations, and not by individuals, will be accepted.
