On June 8-9, Go Digi will be at the fifth Broadband for the Bush Forum titled “Digital Journeys,” held at the State Library of Queensland. The two-day forum is being run as part of the National Year of Digital Inclusion and will explore the different ways that digital technology impacts how we live, learn and connect.
Key topics addressed at the forum include Digital Adaptation in Business, Future of Services, Digital Inclusion and Policy for Better Outcomes. Keynote speaker, Helen Milner OBE, CEO of Tinder Foundation, will be discussing outcomes and learnings of running digital inclusion projects for the past six years in the UK that have impacted 1.8 million people.
We’ll also be running a workshop on the first day to share how people can be involved in Go Digi and the National Year of Digital Inclusion.
The Broadband for the Bush Alliance (B4BA) is an alliance of organisations that seeks to advance the digital capacity and capability of remote Australians. The Alliance has seven key focus areas:
- The expansion of mobile coverage
- Getting digital infrastructure right – both the rational use of existing infrastructure and expanding infrastructure
- Smart last mile solutions for small towns and communities
- Affordable pricing for mobile calls in remote and rural Australia
- Improved digital literacy
- Good research to underpin remote communications policy
- Improving Indigenous communications programs
If you’re interested in how digital technology can empower communities, we’d love you to join us at the two-day forum.
