The influence of the digital world on people and society is growing. VodafoneZiggo wants to increase awareness about this important topic and to address the worries people might have in this respect. In doing so, we focus on finding a balance between the digital and the ‘real’ world. Thus maximizing the digital opportunities and minimizing its negative effects.
We enter into a dialogue with stakeholders to come up with solutions and bring about change. On 3 July 2018, we talked to entrepreneurs, scientists, social organizations and politicians during a meeting called Balance the Future. Through our Raad van Kinderen (Kids Council) we asked young people how we can support families in their digital life. We founded the Future Society, a platform where experts share their vision with a wider public about how we should utilize digital technology.
We are affiliated with Samen Digiwijzer, where several parties work together to support schools in their efforts to teach digital skills to children. We contribute to the discussion about the development of a new curriculum to which digital literacy has been added.
We are partner of the TechniekPact (Technology Pact), with the aim to improve the alignment of education and employment in the technology sector. This should lead to reducing the shortage of technical staff.
