The Foundation for Science and Technology, IP, within the Forum for the Information Society - Internet Governance, aims to collect contributions for Portugal to present the Internet Governance Forum 2016, which will be held in Mexico in December, under the theme “Enabling Inclusive and Sustainable Growth”.
The workshop focus will be on the problem of 28% of the Portuguese population that has never had any contact with the Internet and the services available in it, facing exclusion in a society increasingly marked by digital shed.
This workshop aims to open the debate on policy measures to promote inclusion and sustainability of the whole Portuguese society increasingly based on digital economy and massive use of Internet services, drawing attention to the urgency of concerted action between government, regulators, government, economic operators and civil society.
