As we face the COVID-19 pandemic together, Konexio continues its advocacy and support for those without digital skills. Digital skills have taken on a particular importance these past few weeks, as whole societies isolate at home. Whether teleworking, getting the latest public health guidelines, or checking in with loved ones over a video call, we rely on digital skills to keep our lives going and our communities safe. Meanwhile, those who lack computers, smartphones, internet connections, or the skills to use these technologies suffer disproportionately.
This is why Konexio’s work matters more now than ever. COVID-19 has thrown a spotlight on the digital divide and highlighted the consequences of digital inequality. In this moment of collective awareness, Konexio is increasing its mobilization, so that no one will have to be left behind.
