After already two successful online meetings, the LinkingPins will meet again on April 21. This time, the created Joint Action Groups will pitch their ideas to the participants and contributors to reach the next step in this Digital Journey.
What happened so far?
The Digital Journey started on March 24 with the Design Day, the Kick-off session. During this session, all the participants, the so-called Linking Pin’s, were introduced. Together, we created a mapping of the digital ecosystem. What do we already have and where are the organisations most proud of? those were the main questions. After this inventory, we looked at the different ambitions of the more than 30 various participating organisations, such as Oxfam, ICCO and Amref. An analysis was made with the collected information and shared with the group. After that, for all the Linking Pin’s, the next step was to focus on Joint Action Group Ideas.
On April 7, part two of the Design Day took place. Again, over 50 participants, among which also the program manager ‘digital for development’ of Foreign Affairs, joined the digital meeting place to discover together which Joint Action Groups could continue the Digital Journey in their new formation. Around 10 ideas were sent in beforehand, and during the session itself even more ideas came up. Some examples: ‘How can we become truly data-driven?’, ‘Responsible data ecosystem for disaster management’ or ‘How can we best communicate with our partners online?’. With all these ideas, the Joint Action Groups were created, and their needs and next steps are specified.
