The iSocial Foundation presents its Guide for Digital Transformation in Entities at the SocialDigital Conference of FICE.
FICE, a network of social organizations that focuses on advocating for children’s rights, commissioned iSocial to create a guide to promote technological innovation in the third social sector
On November 24th, the SocialDigital conference – Transforming Lives took place at the Cibernàrium auditorium, bringing together experts and entities from the third sector to reflect on how new technologies can contribute to the development of the social sector.
The event was organized by FICE Spain, a network of social organizations specializing in the defense of children’s rights, with the participation of two iSocial member entities: the private foundation Resilis and the Basque cooperative Agintzari.
The highlight of the event was the presentation of the “Guide for Digital Transformation. A Vision from the Social Sector of Childhood,” commissioned by FICE to the iSocial Foundation as part of the TIC Impulsa 3 digital transformation project, a state initiative coordinated by FICE Spain and funded by the Ministry of Social Rights and Agenda 2030 through NextGeneration funds.
Among other content, the guide analyzes what digital transformation is and its implications for the third social sector. It reflects on the specificity of digital transformation in the field of childhood, discusses some challenges and opportunities, and proposes 20 examples of best practices that can help define paths to follow. The guide also includes a questionnaire that allows organizations to self-assess their level of digital transformation, providing recommendations based on the results obtained.
For those interested in the guide, it can be consulted in the research section of our website.
During the FICE-driven event, several inspiring practices of digital transformation with a social perspective were also presented. In this context, there was a presentation of Flapp!, our digital tool for accompanying adolescents and young people with emancipation needs, co-designed participatively with more than 120 young people. Flapp! is the result of a project led by iSocial and funded by the Government of Catalonia and the La Caixa Foundation, with the participation of the Idea Foundation, Pere Claver Group, Resilis, the University of Barcelona and Punt de Referència as partners, and Alba Jussà and the Open University of Catalonia as collaborators.
