Global Focus has two projects under the DDI:
- Advisory Board: Global Focus convenes and facilitates the Advisory Board for the DDI and acts as its secretariat. The Advisory Board is envisioned as a cross-culturally collaborative, future focused, inclusive, independent, and innovative consultative body integral to the governance structure of the DDI. The core purpose of the Advisory Board is to ensure that the voices of local civil society actors are present at all levels of the programme, from the strategic direction to the programmatic implementation, providing expert advice on policy as well as operational matters.
- Knowledge Hub: In concert with CIVICUS, Global Focus is working to construct a global digital learning platform that curates relevant information and knowledge products – including from other DDI projects and beyond – in localised and accessible formats to enable peer-learning within and across borders and organisations about the challenges, opportunities, and impact of digital technologies on civic engagement and inclusive democracy. It is a key goal for this platform by have longevity beyond the time frame of the DDI.
