Contribute to the survey: Public consultation on a set of European Digital Principles until the 2nd of September!

Next to several other action points, the European Commission proposes under the chapter on ‘Digital Citizenship’ to formulate a set of digital principles that should shape Europe’s digital society in the European way. The consultation activities aim at collecting the views of all interested stakeholders that have opinions and views on the formulation of such a set of European digital principles. It is open to other EU institutions, Member States, regional and local authorities, NGOs and civil society organisations, international and umbrella organisations, other digital stakeholders, and citizens.

MCA supports the contribution from SDEPS and the Statement published by Europeana ecosystem and contributed as well to the consultation by highlighting the hereby issues:

  • Digital Education should be a key component of digital principles and
    should be understood in a broad sense beyond technological skills;
    Ethics, Critical Thinking, Environmental issues are at the heart of a
    human-centered, inclusive and sustainable digital environment.
  • Digital sobriety: the principles of digital sobriety should be more developed in the digital principles both for professionals and for citizens.
  • Information about copyright, the use and reuse of contents should be more evident, clear and easily accessible.
