Engaging Grassroots Communities in Digital Development

KUCHING: Advancements in digital and communication technologies are fast-transforming the global economic landscape and Sarawak will not be left out in this digital revolution. In its efforts to ensure that Sarawakian communities are well-equipped to participate in this new economy, various initiatives have been carried out by the state government to ensure digital inclusivity.

As an effort to familiarise and educate grassroots leaders on development strategies and trends under the digital economy agenda, Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) in collaboration with Angkatan Zaman Mansang (AZAM) Sarawak is organising a one-day workshop called Randau Digital Sarawak themed “Ke Arah Masyarakat Digital” on 5 September 2018 in Limbang.

A hundred participants comprising members of the Village Development and Security Committees (JKKK) from Limbang Division are expected to attend this one-day workshop.

The workshop is primarily to generate awareness among JKKK members – who are among the state’s development frontliners, on the importance and benefits of digital economy. The workshop seeks to equip the JKKKs with the relevant knowledge and networking that can enable them to mobilise their respective communities to initiate activities that promote and nurture digital economy.

The sessions will be conducted by government representatives from Department of Agriculture Sarawak (DOA), Kuching District Office, UNIMAS, and local industry players.

Among the key sectors to be discussed at the workshop are capacity-building on digital economy, e-tourism, technopreneurship and digital agriculture.

The one-day event will also include a randau session with local elected people’s representatives who will provide an opportunity for the people to voice out and discuss their concerns about digital economy initiatives and development.

It is the first in a series of workshops for JKKK, in a programme by SMA and AZAM, to promote digital inclusivity. The next workshop is scheduled to be held in November for Miri Division.
