Mind the Digital Gap

Address:

The King's Fund
11-13 Cavendish Square
London
W1G 0AN
United Kingdom

Date and Time:
-

For our second event of the series, we discussed how society should respond to the issue of digital exclusion in later life, now and in the future.

This is the second event in our Breakfast event series, to discuss and debate the topic of ageing. We want this series to bring together a wide range of people who are interested in the big issues related to ageing to raise the debate and start talking about ageing in a productive way.

Mind the Digital Gap

There are now more people online in later life than ever before. But despite rapid increases, millions of people in later life are not online. And this is not something that will simply disappear in the future.

With the increasing longevity of our population, the millions who are not online now will live up to a further 10, 20 or even 30 years. And with continued advances in technology, those who are less educated and digitally engaged now are likely to become digitally excluded as they age, especially once they leave the workforce.

As more aspects of life become digitised, what it means to be digitally included will also change and will be less about whether you are online and more about the activities you are carrying out and how.   

Join us and our panel as we discuss how society should respond to the issue of digital exclusion in later life, now and in the future.
