Going digital - takeaways for non-profits from a pan-European project

Thursday, April 27, 2023 - 13:00 to 13:45

Do you want to make the most of the digital tools and opportunities that could help your organisation be more efficient, reach more people and open up new avenues for your social mission?

This webinar is based on work done by the Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership as a partner in a pan-European project; EU3Digital. This project has investigated the skills, attitudes and knowledge that support effective digital practices.  

In the webinar you will hear about a competence framework tailored to the third sector, and a toolkit of what’s available now. You’ll also hear from a small organisation that has introduced new digital tools and practices.
