The ECHO (Ethical, Common, Human and Open) Network project is an Erasmus+ funded project carried out by a consortium comprising of 7 partners of 5 different countries. The project represents a vision for democracy in the online space and for democratic choice for each individual when choosing how to access the online realm and aims to promote digital citizenship.
Project partners collaborate in exchanging their experiences regarding using ethical digital software, taking stock of the existing resources, alternatives to the technology provided by the tech giants promoting a consumerist business model that feeds off of learners’ data, and training resources to build up a movement for educating learning to explore ethical digital solutions in their learning process.
The project will do so, inter alia, by creating a reference of existing trainings for actors of popular education in the partner countries on the concept of digital citizenship, a plea for an ethical and sustainable digital transition, and a mapping of organizations working to promote ethical digital technology in the project’s partner countries.
The project runs until 2024 and the consortium comprises of the following organizations:
CEMEA Belgique (Belgium)
CEMEA Federazione Italiana (Italy)
CEMEA (France) (coordinator)
Centre for Peace Studies (CPS) (Croatia)
