At Telefónica Hispanoamérica they aim to promote universal access to the advantages offered by digital services, which is why they approach digital inclusion from a cross-cutting vision that includes the pillars of Accessibility and Affordability, as well as Digital Skills, Connectivity and Innovation in Digital Content and Services.
For this reason, in their Company and through the Digital Pact, they advocate that technology and digitalization are the best allies to rebuild the best for our societies and economies. They promote a fair and sustainable digital transition, which is only possible with the efforts of society.
Likewise, for more than 20 years, the Telefónica Foundation has been working in the formal and non-formal education sector to enrich teaching proposals through the introduction of new technologies (ICT) not only as practices for innovation and school transformation, but also as valuable tools for inclusion. Likewise, work is being done to close the digital divide by seeking to promote the acquisition of digital competencies in all age groups so that society, in general, is increasingly better prepared to face the challenges presented by the technological revolution.
In addition, the emergence of COVID-19 has highlighted the relevance of connectivity for people’s lives. Therefore, in this context, digital inclusion has special relevance, mainly directed towards the urgent reduction of the technological gap in rural areas of Latin American countries.
For this reason, One Young World join forces to promote initiatives that contribute to the strengthening of digital capabilities in all parts of Latin America.
