International Day of Older Persons - Webinar Digital Equity for All Ages. How Digital Inclusion Supports Equality and Rights of Older People

Published 01/10/2021


(01 October 2021) International Day of Older Persons highlights Digital Equity for All Ages in recognition of the need to take steps to address digital exclusion experienced by older people.

Join our webinar today: Digital Equity for All Ages. How Digital Inclusion Supports Equality and Rights of Older People as we launch our new policy brief Digital Inclusion and an Ageing Population.


How to Join the Discussion

At least 466,000 people over the age of 65 experience digital exclusion in Ireland, meaning that they are not using the internet or they lack the digital devices or necessary skills to navigate the internet safely, and therefore are limited in their ability to access public services online. Digital exclusion restricts people’s access to their rights and affects their quality of life. 

You can access the webinar at 11am today
