Community Development and Digitalization

Community Development and Digitalization

Last year I visited Belarus several times. My goal was to learn more about the country and to get in touch with the people.  I am curious on  exchanging ideas, in special with the topic community development, health and digitalization.

In April 2019 I introduced ideas of community development and digitalization from my German and Dutch projects to local NGO´s and municipality employee´s in Belarus. One of the workshops was held in Vileyka district, the other in Mogilev.

The following article about my workshop has been published in Belarus:

“The modern world is developing very rapidly, new technologies are coming to us, we are using an increasing number of digital gadgets – phones, netbooks, tablets, e-books. All this to a certain extent creates comfort for a person, but, at the same time, makes him more lonely and devoid of live communication. …”

The funding of the workshops was made possible by LAG-21 / IBB Dortmund from Germany
