With the COVID-19 pandemic making face-to-face interaction difficult, digital, and online solutions have played an increasingly large role in society. From virtual learning and GP appointments, online socialising to track and trace, digital solutions have kept many of us going.
Yet for many in society these solutions have been out of reach, with the pandemic exacerbating the impact of existing inequalities that leave many digitally excluded.
With the importance of digital only likely to grow in the months and years ahead, it is vital that all elements of society have the means to thrive online.
In light of this fact the Scottish Government has put digital inclusion and participation at the heart of its newly released Digital Strategy.
Join Holyrood Events as we examine the Scottish Government’s proposals and discuss what else we can learn from grassroots initiatives in Scotland and further afield when it comes to ending digital exclusion.
