itsme® celebrates its 4th birthday by supporting the Flagey Academy children’s and youth choir.
Flagey Academy & itsme®: on the way to their own identity. "your voice is unique, your identity too"
In 2017, Belgium discovered the itsme® identity app that every Belgian can use to undeniably confirm his or her digital identity. It seems that itsme® is already making a significant contribution towards digital inclusion. In the space of four years, around 40% of the Belgian adult population has created an itsme® account and 3.2 million of our citizens use the app to identify themselves online, confirm digital transactions and sign documents electronically. Every day, more than 3,500 new users sign up to itsme®.
For some people, digital developments in society are advancing very quickly. Thanks to itsme®, they can now take not just one, but a hundred steps at once.
From their own voice in a choir to their own identity in our society
Finding their own voice and daring to use it is also important for the youngest people in society. That’s why itsme® supports the Flagey Academy choral project in Brussels, which offers free musical training at a high level to children and young people aged 8 to 20. Through the project, youngsters of every social and cultural background are given the opportunity to develop musically.
Every young person in the choir has his or her unique vocal quality, but sings in harmony with the others in the choir. Which creates a direct parallel with itsme®: the identity of every itsme®user is unique, but thanks to the itsme® app, everyone can participate quickly and safely in the digital society in which we live.
In the world of music, the score acts as a fixed framework in which the singers can work creatively. In the online world, itsme® also provides a fixed framework, a recognisable standard that users can rely on and which gives companies the opportunity to expand their customer experience digitally.
Flagey Academy has already been working for the past two years in various Brussels primary schools, where musical training is provided free of charge. The children are guided and accompanied during school hours by a team of professional musicians and teachers. This training, which is available to anyone who has the motivation, is only possible thanks to the support of the partners involved.
Specially to mark the fourth birthday of itsme®, several videoclips have been recorded in two primary schools in Brussels, where Flagey Academy organises choir rehearsals for children aged 8 to 12. These videos will be posted on social media during the birthday week.
