Digital cooperation to bridge digital divides
Governments worldwide struggle with bridging the digital divide, which takes many forms and is much more complex than access to ICTs. Beyond access, digital literacy is one way to grant citizens the agency and confidence required to fully reap technology’s benefits and to participate more fully in an increasingly digital society.
The fourth Digital Future Society report features 4 in-depth case studies of digital literacy initiatives powered by digital cooperation. Each case shows how digital divides treated as complex social challenges (instead of a matter of technology access alone) and tackled by a diverse set of players (engaged in shaping collaborative solutions) can promote digital literacy and equitable growth.
