About the project
The degree of digitization is steadily increasing in our society. European countries have multiple mandatory digital solutions regarding public services. The increasing reliance on digital technology in people's everyday life necessitates the development of digital literacy skills to enable their continued participation in the Internet information-age. As existing services, such as banking and shopping, move increasingly online, the likelihood of excluding certain demographic groups, such as the elderly and those living in rural areas, increases exponentially.
The project ‘Digital Communities’ aims to ensure that local communities and rural areas equally get the chance to develop digital skills, try new tools and technologies as well as build communities around this. It will apply an inclusive approach to include the local population of rural areas, not only in training activities but also in developing the activities to be offered.
