Offline, no one can hear you scream: Achieving digital equity in the 21st century

Policy briefing

  • Accessibility & inclusion
  • Digital
  • Technology

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:

  1. We need backing and buy-in from local and national government
  2. Boosting accessibility of digital tools remains a key factor in the digital divide
  3. We need to explore the mental and emotional barriers of digital exclusion
  4. We can achieve digital enablement throughout society with appropriate IT skills training
  5. We need a holistic approach to digital inequality

A digitally equal future is possible but we must act now to achieve it.
