The Office for IT and eGovernment launched a Digital Solidarity Portal, available at www.digitalnasolidarnost.gov.rs, intended to improve the quality of life to all those who are staying at home due to the corona virus pandemic. www.digitalnasolidarnost.gov.rs is the first government-launched crowd sourcing platform. It is providing information about free platforms for distance learning, working from home, as well as free books, courses, music, films and other educational and entertaining content during the COVID-19 pandemic.
