What can be done?

We need to create and empower digital citizens to address challenges at the local level with access, education, and transparency. The debate needs to move more from the global sphere to the local level. Creating “citizens’ councils” on technology could be part of a solution, empowering citizens to be active, and at the same time increasing transparency.
