Next Panel Session on Digital Inclusion & Participation
For the next session “Digital Inclusion and Participation” on November 8, 4 experts in the field of inclusion and digital participation (Jasmin Rukolainen, Adina Serban, Thomas Schallhart and Panu Räsänen) will delve into the latest academic research on the topic of how participatory and inclusive digital transformation can be achieved. They will touch on topics like accessibility, creating safer spaces and gaming and VR as tools for youth participation.
Digital inclusion is about people, particularly those that are disadvantaged and underrepresented, having access to, as well as the skills to use, online tools.
Alongside inclusion, digital participation is vital, giving people the knowledge, technology and online spaces to fully participate in the digital world, whether that be education, civic life or democracy.
