The public does not have much knowledge and a lot of information about the Digital Agenda of the European Union and that is why the project “Increasing Civic Engagement in the Digital Agenda – ICEDA” which is co-financed by the European Union, aims to increase the participation of civil society organizations in promoting, shaping and implementing the Digital Agenda in the Western Balkans.
As part of the project, the Metamorphosis Foundation for Internet and Society is organizing an online event “Dialogues for the Digital Agenda”.
The event will take place on 30 October 2020 (Friday) at 11:00 AM on the ZOOM online platform. Entrance to the event is provided via the following link: https://techsoupglobal.zoom.us/j/96923533618…
The event will consist of a brief presentation of the project and the ICEDA network, the Digital Agenda for the Western Balkans and the presentation of the research conducted within the Observatory of the Digital Agenda in North Macedonia conducted by the Metamorphosis Foundation within the project. The event will serve to develop a discussion on the benefits and challenges of implementing the Digital Agenda in today’s context in North Macedonia, which will result in conclusions that the Metamorphosis Foundation will take into account while implementing its further activities.
Speakers at the event are expected to be Jeton Shaqiri – Minister of Information Society and Administration, Freek Janmaat – Head of Operations (economic development, rule of law, public administration) at the EU Delegation in North Macedonia, Prof. Vladimir Petkovski, Institute of Economics – Skopje, University “Ss. Cyril and Methodius ”, Boris Arsov, PhD, Head of Telecommunications Sector at the Agency for Electronic Communications, Bardhyl Jashari – Executive Director of the Metamorphosis Foundation, Mila Josifovska Danilovska – Program Manager – Social Accountability and Human Rights Online in Metamorphosis Foundation, and a representative of the Ministry of Information Society and Administration.
