Event Description

On 10-11 October 2019, ALL DIGITAL will organise its 12th annual summit in Bologna, Italy. The event is co-hosted by our Italian members ART-ER, Lai-Momo  Open Group in collaboration with Emilia-Romagna Digital Agenda and supported by Golinelli Foundation.

ALL DIGITAL Summit 2019 will tackle two distinctive but equally important themes for our network. Basic digital skills for everyone have always been at the core of our work ever since the digital inclusion leaders met more than 10 years ago to establish a European network. STEAM skills are, on the other hand, a newer topic on the advanced side of the skills spectrum with increasing importance where digital competence centres have a key role to play.

Do you think basic digital skills and STEAM skills meet? And if yes, where? In the digital competence centres, of course.

In recent years, our network has evolved and grown. New organisations have joined, and new topics are emerging. STEM (and now STEAM) skills is one of them, steadily making its way into our digital competence centres through fab labs, maker spaces, robotics, digital creativity activities. Our role is to make these technologies available to everyone, regardless of their social and economic status, educational level, geographic location and background. At the same time, basic digital skills and digital literacy remain a top priority for us, because we know that way too many people in Europe are still unable to perform very basic operations with digital devices (43% of them, which is about 200 million people).

This is why, this year, we are addressing these two topics together – on Day 1 we will look into ground-breaking forward-looking ways to turn digital competence centres into STEAM hubs supporting everyone to develop high-end skills, while on Day 2 we will remind ourselves that our job to ensure basic digital literacy for everyone is far from done.
