E-Inclusion Day promotes digital access for all

The first E-Inclusion Day took place in Brussels on Saturday, as part of a plan to improve public access to digital services, devices and knowledge. The project is an initiative by the non-profit Tracé Brussels, which aims to tackle unemployment in the capital. 

E-Inclusion Day is the starting point for the further roll-out of e-inclusion plans in Brussels, with which the Flemish Community Commission wants to ensure equal access to digital devices and strengthen digital skills through training. 

Tracé has previously launched the Digibank project, setting up places in Flanders and Brussels where people can go to ask questions about digital services or follow workshops related to digital literacy. While these are focused on jobseekers, the E-Inclusion Day was designed to reach anyone in the capital who feels excluded digitally, including the elderly and parents of young children.

Several hundred people took part in workshops and visited information stands on Saturday. “I think we can call it a success,” said Dieter Op de Beeck, digital inclusion project coordinator at Tracé Brussels.
