The RSA in partnership with the Digital Poverty Alliance explore what a digitally equal future could look like and make a range of recommendations on what needs to happen to get there.
In our briefing: Offline, No One Can Hear You Scream: Achieving Digital Equity in the 21st Century we make a number of recommendations to achieve this future:
- We need backing and buy-in from local and national government
- Boosting accessibility of digital tools remains a key factor in the digital divide
- We need to explore the mental and emotional barriers of digital exclusion
- We can achieve digital enablement throughout society with appropriate IT skills training
- We need a holistic approach to digital inequality
A digitally equal future is possible but we must act now to achieve it.
