Hundreds of influencers from a range of specialist areas, varying locations and across a wide age group attended the 4th Annual Digital Citizenship Summit.

We have always advocated that digital citizenship needs to be at school, at home and at the work.

The aim of the game is staying up to date, planning and preparing for the future and embracing new digital advancements. #digcitweekend featured expert speakers and interactive workshops centered around global digital citizenship. The event shared knowledge through panel discussions, breakout sessions and student showcases. Both online and offline issues were discussed, and solutions and practical tips shared.

Sharing Knowledge and Experience

My digital journey is still evolving. I am taking charge of the digital skills gap in the public sector but my knowledge sharing extends to all manner of organisations, groups and individuals. Digital communications can, and should, apply to everyone. Check out my segment on the panel discussion below.
