Featured image

The Cities Coalition for Digital Rights, UN-Habitat, UCLG and Eurocities, in partnership with Open Society Foundation, are launching an open call to find experts and city governments in Europe to pilot the Digital Rights Governance Framework.

Selected cities will receive support to design and implement the Digital Rights Governance Framework at the local level, and will be provided with technical advice, ad hoc support and advisory input.

The goal of the project is to tackle local digital-rights challenges around digital rights thematic areas such as digital inclusion, individual’s control and autonomy of data, transparency and accountability, public participation and community engagement, privacy, digital public goods and open digital infrastructures, procurement by developing a Digital Rights Governance Framework and a capacity-building programme in these topics.

Using challenge-driven innovation, the pilot process will include assessments, workshops and a capacity-building approach that will be carried out in collaboration with the city’s local staff.

The call is open to:

  • “CITIES”, where city governments in Europe are welcome to apply by sharing local challenges in the different digital rights areas 
  • “EXPERTS”, for professionals with background in the thematic areas related to digital rights
