Netherlands chooses: The future is digital

  • Date: 13 November 15:00 - 18:00
  • Location: Nieuwspoort

On Monday, November 13, from 15h00 to 18h00 (including drinks), the first National Debate on Digitization will take place at Nieuwspoort. Several (aspiring) Members of Parliament will discuss the importance of digitization and the positions of various parties, led by former Member of Parliament Kees Verhoeven. The debate is organized by a consortium of organizations involved in digitization.

Why this debate?

Digitalization affects every aspect of our daily lives: from economic growth and (other forms of) employment to privacy, cybersecurity, digital inclusion and skills from young to old. In addition, new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the role of (regulation from) Europe are increasingly influencing our society. This is only marginally reflected in the draft party programs of most political parties competing in the November 22 elections.

Positions of different MPs and parties

This debate therefore offers a unique opportunity to hear how different (aspiring) MPs view the opportunities (first round) and threats (second round) of a digitized society. MPs from BBB, GroenLinks/PvdA and D66 have already confirmed to come.
