Social Tech Academy

Community

The Social Tech Academy is a peer-to-peer, open-source, democratic and practical acculturation programme. It is designed to empower social economy stakeholders in their digital transition.

 

The conclusions our 2019 study and our research task force drew were simple. A large majority of social economy organisations were lacking digital tools, or were even not aware of their existence. In spite of that, they believed their Tech skills shall be improved.

This was how the Social Tech Academy was created.

The main goals of the Social Tech Academy

Promotion of Social economy and civil society solutions

Through these online trainings, we want to promote the digital solutions of social economy or plebiscited by its members, and thus allow a better understanding of the challenges and potentialities of the digital transition.

Digital inclusion and mediation

Because we firmly believe that digital is the business of all citizens and all organisations, we believe that digital acculturation is a major social issue for social economy organisations, which are real “transmission belts” to the publics furthest away from digital.

Educate and upskill

Through our programme, we wish to increase the skills of those involved in social utility by offering them the opportunity to meet their daily digital needs.
