Link: Digital Inclusion Conference 2009 – London

  • Fourth annual event bringing together over 300 experts, decision-makers and practitioners to network, debate digital inclusion policy and practice and shape the agenda for action that delivers ’empowerment through technology’.

    With the appointment of the first ever Digital Inclusion Minister, The Rt Hon. Paul Murphy MP, the launch of a new Digital Inclusion Action Plan for consultation, and the creation of a further new Government post, the Minister for Communications, Technology and Broadcasting, the political weight behind this agenda has never looked stronger.

    There is still however more to do, and with the creation of new political leadership, there is a need for the crystallisation of ideas around digital inclusion to ensure that resources are expended in the most efficient and effective ways.
