Digital platforms for social and economic inclusion

Breakfast Debate


This breakfast debate will focus on effective ways to embrace long-term competitiveness and innovation while fostering and enabling participation in society. 
The increasing importance of digital platforms and their central role in society have been well recognised. Nevertheless, during this debate we would like to also present their added value in social and economic inclusion.

High-level speakers from CECUA, Allegro Group, Public Libraries 2020, Mastercard and Telecentre Europe will address from various angles how we ensure social and economic inclusion for this and future generations of young people as well as for our older citizens.
