Citi’s digital inclusion project is the result of 2 mandate commitments

Project N ° 84 – Build a Network of Digital Third Places

“We will create and animate a network of digital third places to ensure a coherent network in the city. Accessible to all, each digital third place will provide dedicated space and be equipped with Internet access (public WiFi and high-speed fiber connection), digital equipment, support and thematic workshops. We will propose to Agen’s group to extend this network to its territory to prepare the population for future health crisis (fight against teleworking and isolation). “

Project N ° 85 – Fighting the digital divide

“We will create the post of Digital Inclusion Officer. This will lead a team of professional digital public writers (volunteers, civic services, etc.) who will intervene, especially in the third place, to support people who are the farthest from digital in their administrative procedures and in their daily lives.

Digital inclusion strategies are based on two lines of action:

Geographically the area is fake

So far 3 digital spaces have been opened (Barleté, Montanou, Montesquieu) for 3 digital spaces we have worked in collaboration with the political department of the city and have taken advantage of what has been set up.

We are also working on creating a digital third place in the Lacépède Media Library, which should open by the end of 2023. At the same time, we are occasionally working with city stakeholders to provide digital support, Antoine Gay (digital advisor) Leon Bloom accompanies users to the post office, and we will offer partners in Florida early next school year.

Hire a team dedicated to digital inclusion

To date, a digital inclusion officer (Adélaïde Bourjade) oversees the city’s digital inclusion strategy, a team of 3 digital advisors has been appointed by the City of Agen (Antoine Gay, Myriam Mouakkid and Daniela Barekova) and now we have Jonathan Couture, CC- Welcome. Agent who works 3 days a week in Montesquieu digital space.

Why is Montesquieu a digital space?

This digital space has opened its doors to the need for digital support for CCAS and social center users.

Before:

CCAS offers personal assistance to seniors 3 mornings a week, the Social Center offers a digital workshop led by volunteers once a week and a hotline for users online online administration once a week (led by city digital advisors).

Now:

Digital Space works with CCAS and CS, offering a full range of adaptive services for seniors and families, including different spaces (training, free access and interaction / diagnosis with digital advisors) from Tuesday to Friday.

Operations and organization with CCAS / Social Center

  • The goal is to create a synergy between CCAS and the needs identified by Social Centers and Digital Advisors, Associations and Volunteers who will conduct personalized digital trainings and workshops.
  • Create an offer of a digital service in the city center, digital training and a self-service digital access point supervised by a resource person.
  • The proximity between CCAS, the social hub and the digital space makes it easier to break down the barriers of digital division, making these training and mediation services more accessible.
