About The Conference
Digital exclusion is shown to be closely linked to social exclusion generally. Limited access to digital tools, low digital skills and poor quality of engagement in the digital society all contribute to ‘dual exclusion’, where digital exclusion exacerbates, rather than reduces, social inequalities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has in turn amplified ‘dual exclusion’. People with limited access to digital technologies, or without the skills to use them, were hit harder by the effects of the pandemic, leading to what might now be called a situation of ‘triple exclusion’.
The MEDICI Final Conference will address these challenges and discuss emerging good practices in the field of Digital Inclusion in Europe. Current gaps in policy interventions at EU and local level will also be highlighted, with the aim to enhance sustainable and transferable digital inclusion initiatives in a future-oriented perspective.
The MEDICI project supports the exchange and replication of good practices among stakeholders involved in the digital inclusion ecosystem.
Its key aim is to contribute to bridging the ‘digital divide’ affecting in particular vulnerable groups in society, including older people, people with disabilities, ‘left behind’ youth and adults and migrants.
