Tackling Digital Exclusion: The Latest Evidence
This research launch event gives you the latest evidence on digital inclusion. Through case studies and literature review SCVO and University of West of Scotland have evidence of what works best when tackling digital exclusion in Scotland.
Right now in Scotland, one in five adults lack Basic Digital Skills. These are the skills of safely communicating, transacting, managing information, problem solving and creating content to use the internet as part of modern day to day life. The people most likely not to have these skills are older, poorer and facing other forms of disadvantage. In order to tackle exclusion and inequalities, our work focuses on equipping everyone with these skills.
Join SCVO and University of West of Scotland on 22 August, Edinburgh to identify how we can work collectively to reverse this situation. Lunch and time for networking are included in the event timings.
