Digital technology has changed our lives significantly in the past few decades, with most Government agencies and businesses moving online. In many instances this is accompanied by a scaling back of non – digital options. The COVID-19 pandemic has fast-tracked this trend and amplified the role digital engagement plays in our daily lives. Older people are less likely to own a digital device or have internet connection. Some may have the means to be online but lack the skills to carry out online activities safely with trust and confidence. Join the Digital Inclusion Action Group for Older People as we explore the benefits of educating and connecting older people online. We welcome you to discuss helping older New Zealanders to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from the digital world.
