Contributing to the Digital Journey

The Spindle organises a #DigitalJourney for #Partos members looking to accelerate digital transformation within their organisations in innovative and exciting ways. The goal is to co-create digital strategies in Joint Action Groups to build innovations upon the needs of the #Dutch development organisations and discover solutions for digital challenges. Find out more on the website.

During the organised Pitch Event the Joint Action Groups got the opportunity to pitch their idea to an audience of techies, companies, universities and creatives to reach out for possible contributions. D4D is a contributor to two of these Joined Action Groups, since we strongly support the idea that increased digitalisation would benefit the impact of #NGO’s and the #international development sector. 

At the last JAG contributor session of the 14th of May, our Managing Director Maaike Blom participated in the session on creating a platform to share and review digtal solutions. The challenge would be not just to share information, but also to enable NGOs to judge if the offered technical tools  or the shared information is reliable, good, and delivers what they need? A functionality for reviewing and recommending by the community would be wise to integrate. Existing examples of digital knowledge sharing platforms such as Source2gather and Akvopedia were showcased.

Data4Development is happy to support the Digital Journey and we do support its ultimate goal to accelerate the digitalisation of Dutch development organisations and we are curious where the next steps will take us. More news next time!
