Declaration of Barcelona for Digital Social Inclusion
Description / Objectives
A collaboration agreement between Barcelona City Council and the Telefónica Foundation, the Vodafone Foundation, the Orange Foundation, Cisco Systems and Lenovo has led all these organisations to work together to bridge the digital gap. In particular, their work offers social return within the framework of programmes aimed at reducing the digital divide and offering skills acquisition for groups who have greater difficulty fully accessing new technologies. Priority has been given to neighbourhoods and portions of the population that the Government has identified as being more vulnerable.
