The European Alliance of Initiatives for Applied Anthroposophy (ELIANT) has the pleasure to invite you to its international conference in Brussels ‘Towards a Healthy Digital Ecosystem: Values, Competences and Responsibilities’.
About the Conference:
Digital technology is increasingly pervasive in everyday life, raising questions about the role of technology in business, politics and everyday life. Its implications for the healthy development of children and young people have to be assessed.
Europe needs citizens with motivation, tolerance, creativity, empathy and common sense – competencies that must be developed from an early age as a result of interactions between humans.
The conference will feature Martine Reicherts, Director-General at DG EAC, as well as seven expert workshops on:
- Leadership in the digital world
- Starting strong: building a solid foundation in early childhood to navigate through the digital age
- Health and development of the digital child
- Rural exodus and urbanisation – reconnecting children to the natural world
- Digital media in education – the student view
- Digitalisation of the classroom – age appropriate digital curricula
- Digitalisation – added value and risks to the ecosystem

ELIANT is an alliance of 10 European associations of applied anthroposophy set up in 2006 to make a civic contribution towards improving quality of life and cultural diversity in Europe. The main focus of their work is the question of how to make human rights practical and how to bring a sense of human dignity, individual freedom, equality and solidarity into everyday life.
Inspired by the European Citizens’ Initiative before it became operational, ELIANT was the first organisation to successfully collect over 1 million signatures calling for a greater variety and availability of choices in Europe.
This Conference is organised by ELIANT, with the support of ECAS.
