Ireland’s new National Digital Strategy aims to map out how we can positively embrace digital advances for the benefit of every citizen, business, and community in Ireland. We want to educate and empower all our citizens to embrace digital to improve their lives. This Strategy builds on the previous National Digital Strategy – Phase 1: Digital Engagement, launched in 2013, which encouraged and assisted citizens and small businesses to get online.

The public consultation aims to give the public and interested stakeholders a chance to tell Government what priorities should be addressed in the Strategy. Through answering the series of questions, your submission will help them carve out the issues and priorities that matter to the people of Ireland, and create a strong new National Digital Strategy.

Following the conclusion of the consultation phase, all submissions will be published online and Government will draft and publish a Strategy that reflects them.

The Public Consultation will run from the 22nd of October until the 23rd of November 2018.

There is a short questionnaire that forms part of the consultation.
