This toolkit provides stakeholders with guidance on developing a digital skills strategy. It is intended for policymakers, along with partners in the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and academia. Its overarching aim is to facilitate the development of a comprehensive digital skills strategy at country level. Readers will find practical information, examples, and stepbystep guides which they can use to develop their national digital skills strategy as well as policies and programmes to address specific priorities. Chapters 38 include tools that policymakers and stakeholders can use in developing ideas specifically for their country or context. An editable Word version of these tools is attached to the PDF version of this Toolkit which can be accessed by clicking on the paperclip attachment icon in the left navigation bar.



Organizing campaigns and multi-stakeholder initiatives

This chapter covers campaigns and other multi-stakeholder initiatives as a means to building awareness, creating excitement, and otherwise motivating people to learn digital skills. Campaigns are particularly effective for focusing national attention, engaging partners, and launching major programmes. They can be global, regional, national, or local, and should always involve a wide range of sakeholders. Many campaigns include festivals, hands-on demonstrations, or other live events that can be held in a single location or across hundreds or thousands of voluntary sites. Countries often conduct campaigns to target populations that are at risk of being left behind – e.g. women, out of school youth, and persons with disabilities. This chapter also includes a tool to identify opportunities for organizing a campaign or multi-stakeholder initiative.
