About the project

Over the past 30 years, a new digital culture, interactivity, and instantaneous communication have fundamentally changed our world. We are now at a new crossroads: advances in augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence; the "internet of things"; how we interact with devices and the disappearance of the keyboard; and big data and user experiences that are tailored to the individual will all change how we live, work, play and participate in society - administratively, economically, socially and politically.
What are the potential benefits of these changes, what are the potential drawbacks? How can we ensure that such changes lead to the further development of inclusive societies?
While public awareness of some 'negative aspects' of a digital world (on-line bullying, 'fake news') has increased, there has as yet been very little public discourse on how these aspects can be 'fixed'.
"Our digital future, c'est ICI" offers young adults a new platform for a debate that addresses our digital future in a holistic and positive way and focuses on identifying the principles, processes, and decisions that will lead to the most inclusive digital societies.
Shape the society of tomorrow!

You have a unique opportunity to influence policies to achieve an inclusive digital society. Your opinion matters! We need your input to help shape our future society!

Connect with driven young people from Canada and Europe on a local and international level and share your opinions on how we can build our future society in a modern digital context! Network, develop new skills and influence topics that are important to you and the world!

As an on-site participant also have the chance to win a trip to Frankfurt to present the outcomes of this project.

Participants of the Online Challenge have the chance to win a trip to Brussels or Ottawa to the closing event to present their results, as well as other exciting prices.

Throughout six 24-hour Thinkathons in 12 different cities across Europe and Canada, online and on-site participants will work together to shape our society, building on the topics of Citizenship 4.0, Social Relations, Smart and Fast Expanding Cities, Security, Education and Entertainment & Culture in a digital setting.

We’ll make sure your voice is heard! All outcomes and your thoughts and opinions will be shared with European and Canadian policymakers.

Take part now and make a difference to our future!
