The objective of the project "Together online in the North" (MoiN) is to strengthen civic engagement and participation through the development and design of digital information, exchange and collaboration opportunities in the regional association of the Arbeiterwohlfahrt (AWO - Workers' Welfare Association) Schleswig-Holstein and for its members.
Social volunteering and civic engagement have a long tradition in the AWO. Active social work is carried out by volunteers, members and full-time staff.<br/><
The AWO Schleswig-Holstein has a democratic and federal structure with 115 local associations and 15 district associations. It is both a membership organisation with around 16,500 members and a social enterprise. In order to remain future-oriented, the regional association must respond directly to changes in society.
During the project "Together online in the North", the Digital Opportunities Foundation will create and further develop needs-based digitalisation services in order to network members and volunteers more closely, to promote and strengthen their commitment, to enable them to participate, and to support full-time staff in their activities.
During the four years of the project, digital solutions and services are developed and established with the help of agile and participatory methods which are continuously adapted to the context and the needs of the target groups. The MoiN project is funded by the Federal Ministry of the internal affairs under the federal programme "Zusammenhalt durch Teilhabe"
