#RightToConnectNow: Digitalization as an opportunity to build an inclusive society

In the framework of Entelis+ project, AEBR is organizing the virtual Forum #RightToConnectNow: Digitalization an opportunity to build an inclusive society, that will take place on 15th June, 10:00-13:00h.

The current global situation has driven the digitalization of the world of work providing opportunities, diversifying employment options, and promoting new models such as teleworking. The development of digital skills and their inclusion in VET provider programs are currently on the European Agenda. In that line, ICT skills may be relevant when it comes to including people with disabilities in the labour market.

The Forum #RightToConnectNow: Digitalization an opportunity for the formation of an inclusive society will be interpreted simultaneously into English and Spanish. At the same time, we will have the experience of several Spanish local authorities who play an important role in promoting the inclusion of people with different abilities in our society and, therefore, in the world of work.

We will present the work that Entelis+ has carried out in terms of its development of training materials in order to help trainers to provide more accessible training for all types of students.

We also want this event to be part of the campaign promoted by Entelis+ #RightToConnectNow, through which we will be inviting people with disabilities to be heard and claim their right to be connected to the network because nowadays, more than ever, it is necessary to address the digital gap between all of us.
