Digital inclusion – how do we achieve that?
Tuesday 17 May, 15:30 – 16:45, conference room A4
(Session in Swedish: “Digital inkludering – Hur åstadkommer vi det?”)
Digitalisation in society is increasing rapidly and it is happening in all sectors. How do we ensure that everyone is included and have equal access to digital services and initiatives? There are many individuals who, for various reasons, do not have a bank ID, smart phone or knowledge about how digital tools work. There is a risk of marginalization of these individuals. This session discusses how municipalities can work with universal design, removal of obstacles and personal support for creating inclusive digital services and initiatives. More info here.
