On 6-8 October 2020, ALL DIGITAL will organise its 13th annual summit in Berlin, Germany entitled “Competences for the Future”. The event is co-hosted by our German members Helliwood, JOBLINGE, and Digital Opportunities Foundation.
The event is supported by the Ministry of the Economy of the Federal Government of Germany, which has the Presidency of the European Union from 1 July to 31 December 2020. The German Government has made digital learning one of the key priorities for education and training during this EU Presidency.
The Summit brings together representatives of networks and organisations working to enhance digital skills of European citizens. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proposing a hybrid concept: in-person and online, to ensure that those who are not able to travel to Berlin can enjoy the event and take a very active part in it. We expect up to 100 participants in Berlin and invite all others to join online.
Who we are
The Summit is organised by ALL DIGITAL – a Brussels-based network of organisations working to enhance digital skills of Europeans. We were established in 2007 on the initiative of digital inclusion leaders with support from Microsoft first as an informal thematic network, and in 2010 – as a formal international non-profit association. Thirteen years later, we are a major European Association in the field of digital inclusion and empowerment, but also a family united by one purpose: empower Europe through digital skills.
Our vision is that every European should be able to exploit the benefits and opportunities created by digital transformation. We are ALL DIGITAL. Our members are organisations leading the networks of digital competence centres – low threshold community centres, NGOs, libraries, other public places where people get access to technology and the Internet and learn digital skills.
The theme of the Summit is “Competences for the future”, and keynotes, panels, lightning talks and workshops will be organised around these four topics:
- The future of digital competence centres and their role in the re-launch of the European economy
- The new 2.2 version of the DigComp Framework
- A common European digital qualifications classification
- Lessons learned in relation to digital education technologies and methodologies during the crisis

ALL DIGITAL Summit 2020 is co-organised by:
Crowddreaming: Youth Co-Create Digital Culture – CDDC
The ALL DIGITAL Summit 2020 will host the international event of the “Crowddreaming: Youth Co-Create Digital Culture – CDDC” project, also including the launch of its Europa Square platform.
CDDC is a project, coordinated by ALL DIGITAL and co-funded by the EC ERASMUS+ programme under the action KA3 Social Inclusion through Education, training and youth (Project #: 604517-EPP-1-2018-BE-EPPKA3-IPI-SOC-IN). The CDDC Partnership is composed of five partners among universities, European networks and non-formal training providers in adult education from five European countries.
The purpose of CDDC is to disseminate and scale-up at European level the “Crowddreaming” good practice in the field of the valorisation of digital cultural heritage as a mean for inclusive education and for the promotion of European values among youngsters. “Crowddreaming” was born as a contest for schools in Italy with the aim of creating a lasting digital monument dedicated to Europe as a transcultural laboratory. The CDDC project pilot action is implemented in four countries (Croatia, Greece, Italy, and Latvia) directly addressing secondary school teachers and students.
For more than 25 years Helliwood media & education at fjs e.V. has provided educational initiatives, learning labs for different target groups and promotes 21st century competences to empower people from young to old in discovering and experiencing digital media. The organisation brings education and media together and aims to shape actively the digitalized society.
The vision of the JOBLINGE initiative is to make a visible and sustainable contribution to the fight against youth unemployment. Since 2015, JOBLINGE has had a strong focus on STEM and digital learning. The aim is to integrate young people who are most at risk of social exclusion into the STEM-sector with the help of specialized training programmes and by encouraging civil society
actors and businesses to collaborate in these efforts.

Since the establishment in 2002, it is the remit of the German Digital Opportunities Foundation to research the social impact of digitisation, to campaign for equal access to the Internet for all people and to advance digital literacy.
