WSIS Prizes Contest 2021 Nominee



In March, when widespread social distancing measures were introduced in Russia, millions of Russians found themselves inside their apartments, not knowing how to organize their lives, study, work, etc. Realizing the inevitability of universal self-isolation, "Data Economy Russia" together with the Ministry of Digital Development launched an initiative to create an online catalog of vital online services that will help people better adapt to changing lifestyles. The initiative was called "All.Online" and was aimed to organize the Russian digital resilience to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Services for the portal All.Online were selected taking into account the maximum usefulness for citizens in quarantine conditions and are grouped by type of life situations: "Taking Care" (foodtech, delivery, psychological help, telemedicine, etc.); "Working from Home" (remote work for companies, freelancing and internships); "Learning" (educational programs for all ages); "Relaxing" (entertainment and information services). Subsequently, a "Caring for Others" section appeared on the site for charity reasons. Under the motto "Helping to Help," the All.Online project became a link for its audience that connected it with the Association of Volunteer Centers' project "myvmeste2020.rf", the Aid Nearby project and the Kindness Basket project, which helped various social groups during the acute phase of the pandemic.
Most of the companies for sometime offered their services for granted (because of the pandemic) or under special conditions.

Results :
- More than 500 digital services helped several million Russians go through a period of self-isolation with the least loss in quality of life: the combined audience of All.Online and its "mirror" on exceeded 5 million unique visitors;
- was recognized by the Government as a socially important service with non-tariffed Internet access;
- The total audience of messages about the project exceeded 100 million people
