Digital and analog possibilities allow more and more people to access and participate in the community.
The increasing possibilities of communication and interconnection through digitalization allow people of all ages and income groups to access and participate in the community. Digital forums and projects are used in addition to analog meeting places to strengthen interpersonal trust and cohesion and to promote the common good. Digital means of communication enable sharing and shaping, mutual help and exchange. They facilitate cooperation. People participate in target-oriented social discourses via digital and analog platforms.
Diversity in society is supported by digital means, as are equal opportunities, respect, tolerance, inclusion and the integration of people. Despite the always existing filter bubbles and social comparisons, a peaceful, respectful and understanding coexistence also exists in the digital space. [References to: 1. I: The Individual, 2.
