Eurodiaconia is pleased to invite its members and stakeholders to a webinar on the role of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) in the provision of Diaconal social services, which will take place on the 10th of September from 3-5 pm.

As ICTs and digitalization are gaining more space into many areas of society, social service providers are facing the impact of these on work and social relations. Against this background, the aim of this webinar is to discuss the threats, opportunities, and challenges created by ICTs and digitalization, especially in terms of diaconal identity in service provision.

The approach to the seminar will be two-fold. First, Prof. Johannes Eurich, Professor of Practical Theology (Diaconal Studies) at the University of Heidelberg, will address ICTs with an emphasis from an identity angle. Next, the webinar will present concrete examples of how diaconal services are addressing the service needs created by new technologies. The focus will be on new approaches to training and skilling towards work inclusion that take into account changing labour markets and new skill demands.
