Building our digital recovery
We have all experienced rapid changes to how we work, live and interact with each other in recent months. Behaviours have adapted; ways of working have altered; and things we took for granted have changed forever.
Now is the time to rethink our societies and our economies and make sure we build a stronger economically secure and more resilient future. A future that is more inclusive, greener and fairer. A future that embraces the best technology to shape a Europe that works for everyone.
Digitalising Ireland’s Older People
Ireland’s digital divide has been laid bare during COVID-19 – only 19% of the country’s over 65s have even basic digital skills. Anne O’Leary, CEO of Vodafone Ireland, explains how her team worked tirelessly with the charity ALONE to make sure over 1,000 older people were able to stay connected with friends and family during lockdown.
90 for 27
Creating a greener, fairer, more digital society means we need to make sure we are investing in the right infrastructure and services that will deliver new jobs and economic growth.
If all 27 member states worked now to achieve a score of 90 on the DESI, we can be sure that we are building a truly digital society.
Europe can build back better, stronger, and more resilient if we all get behind 90 for 27.
