Shaping digitalization to improve quality of life as much as possible
In two dialogue phases with events, individual interviews and an online participation option, visions, indicators and concrete projects for a good life in the digital age were derived for 11 topics. They should provide orientation for robust future decisions in politics, business, civil society and for each individual:Results are available summarized as a document and interactively available here:
1. I: The Individual
The people with their individual needs are the starting point for the shaping of digitalization.
Digital technologies are used for more participation, openness and diversity – and coherent rules are set.
3. Work & Economy
Sensible interaction between human and machine extends freedom and saves resources.
4. Leisure, Arts & Culture
Digital technologies provide easier and more diverse access to culture and leisure activities.
Across all age groups, competence in dealing with technology, with oneself and with other people increases.
More and better data will facilitate a comprehensive understanding of health, prevention and treatment.
Digital technologies support the protection of natural resources through greater transparency and efficiency.
8. Transport & Mobility
Simpler, safer, faster, more environmentally friendly and interconnected mobility for people and goods.
(There have not yet been sufficient results for a comprehensive evaluation for this topic.)
Digital and analogue possibilities allow more people access to and to participate in the community.

The impact of digitalization on our quality of life
Discourse on quality of life
#Need: Digitalization already has a considerable impact on people’s quality of life, democracy and the future viability of our societies. It raises new and old questions about self-determination, co-determination, participation, and security. So far, however, digitalization is still largely discussed without insights into the quality of life. At the same time, digitalization is only marginally part of the quality of life discourse. It is time to combine the two discourses in an open dialogue process.
#Host: Dialogue processes require a neutral and methodically competent coordination that can bring all actors together. Since 2009, the non-profit think tank Center for Societal Progress e.V. has been developing new ways and methods to improve people’s quality of life. We have led our own processes (e.g. Schöne Aussichten – Forum für Frankfurt and Zukunftsmodell Soziale Marktwirtschaft) and were actively involved in major federal government processes (Zukunftsdialog der Bundeskanzlerin and Gut leben in Deutschland).
