Davor Grgurevic, Gabrijela Budimir Sosko, Kresimir Buntak, Fitim Kurti

Abstract: Digital literacy has become a key work ability and skill in modern public administrations, while digitalisation and the green economy are development priorities in the European Union. The hypotheses are focused on the necessity of a satisfactory level of digital literacy among local government employees, as a prerequisite for launching and implementing sustainable mobility projects that are often mostly funded by EU funds. Digital literacy was assessed through a survey that was conducted among employees of local self-government units in Croatia. Desktop analysis methods were used, i.e. a comprehensive literature re-view and case studies in combination with the survey method. The results of the research confirm the hypothesis that the majority of employees of local self-government units in Croatia have a satisfactory level of digital literacy, which is related to the introduction and monitoring of sustainable mobility in local self-government units.
