Proposal elaborated with the support of the Saber Futuro Foundation.
Digital Sovereignty is a different way of doing State, that puts technologies at the service of people's well-being, integrity, and security. Its most important success indicator is a demonstrable improvement in the well-being of users.
Not to be confused with the so-called digital government, whose focus has been more in digitising bureaucracy (how) than in effectively reducing it (why).

A participatory way of modernising the State, considering the diversity of territories.
Respect people from the outset
We must give priority to technologies that are free, simple, accessible, auditable, easy to use and easy to improve.
Focus on people's needs over elaborate plans
We must make services evolve according to user feedback rather than according to a plan written behind four walls.
Make technology accountable for its real impact
We must let teams be autonomous in deciding how to implement services and propose ways to evaluate their impact on users' well-being.
Innovation is an emergent social dynamic
We must support and actively participate in the efforts of the State, local governments, academia, companies, and citizens themselves.
Change depends on makers downstream
We must let people in the field design, develop, manage and improve digital public services. Jointly with users, other civil servants and civil society.
Permanent solutions come from communities
We must promote and support local ecosystems and open, shared and decentralised management approaches.
