Millennia2025 digintelles, Collective intelligence and digital skills as drivers for empowerment

    digintelles is a Millennia2025 label meaning: "dig" = digital (digital skills); "int" = intelligence (collective intelligence) and "elles" = she, women (empowerment, equality, leadership). We are mobilizing for digintelles 2.0, the Millennia2025 Foresight tool, strategic in the unprecedented context of the coronavirus and the too long confinements it imposes on us. The pandemic is changing our lives, threatening our health, weakening human relationships. Inequalities are all the more acute, women and girls are dramatically affected and violence against women escalates terribly during the confinements. Collective intelligence associated with digital skills are essential tools to implement for all generations.
    Expected Impact

    The Millennia2025 Women and Innovation Foundation "digintelles" Foresight tool enforced during the pandemic simply asks answers to 7 questions online.\r\nThe presentation is online in English and in French:\r\nEN: \r\nFR:\r\n\r\nWith a video:\r\nEN:…\r\nFR:\r\n\r\nThe questionnaire is online:\r\nEN:\r\nFR:\r\n\r\nThe aim of digintelles is to gather personalities and heads of networks working in these fields, to collect their contribution, to analyse their propositions together, to define the concrete action plans, the resources and the networks to mobilize in productive collaboration. \r\nThe memorandums and resolutions will be produced and presented on the interactive website, in French and in English. Specific digintelles sessions will be organised in the participant's regions to build the next Millennia2025 Foundation international conference, at the United Nations with UN Women in 2025.\r\nThe final objective will be to present, implement and promote the results of Millennia2025 in order to mobilize the political and economic leaders against violence, for women's empowerment and equality, within the framework of five UN Sustainable Development Goals identified within the Millennia2025 Strategic Axes:\r\n> 3 = Health, \r\n> 4 = Education,\r\n> 5 = Equality,\r\n> 6 = Justice and \r\n> 8 = Economic leadership.\r\n\r\nThe digintelles foresight survey will remain open to allow you to spread this call to your networks and mobilize them to contribute. We will present the first results at the Forum Generation Equality, a global gathering for equality between women and men organized by UN Women in Paris in 2021, as a commemoration of the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, especially as Marie-Anne Delahaut is a member of the UN Women Beijing+25 / Generation Equality Advisory Committee Working Group.\r\n\r\nContribute, invite your colleagues, your students, your associations to answer and spread this call of Millennia2025 digintelles!
