Undisputedly, the global digital shift has not only redefined the way we communicate and our perception of time, but has also proven itself most effective in terms of breaking traditional boundaries such as those of mobility, access to education, health care or access to information.
This year’s ASA Kaleidoskop will focus on the role of digitalisation in Sustainable Development and in Sustainable Business. The event comprises key notes, workshops, pitches, in-between activities and a lot of networking opportunities. It will highlight the following questions:
- Are we steering towards a digital future in which all parts of our global society and the environment are equally benefitting from technological advancements? Or are we moving towards a future where access to wealth and information are even more exclusive than they are today?
- How should we deal with digitalisation and which entrepreneurial skills are necessary so that it has a positive social and environmental impact?
- What best practices can we find in the area of IT for Development?
- What digital best practices are there in terms of African-German partnerships?
The ASA Kaleidoskop 2018 will take place on Friday, 26 October in Stuttgart, Germany. It is being organised by Engagement Global with its ASA Programme in cooperation with the Baden-Württemberg Foundation for Development Cooperation. The exact location is yet to be determined.
