Information about the project
Silver Infocomm Initiative - E-including seniors for wellness and integration into the community
The Silver Infocomm Initiative (SII) is a Digital Inclusion effort, led by the government in strong partnership with industry, academia and the community, to engage the seniors so that they, too will be able to benefit from a digital economy. This is made more evident as Singapore develops to be a Smart Nation, with many critical government services moving online. The success of SII hinges on the following: - a multi-pronged approach; - strong partnerships; - active volunteerism; and - sustained government support. These elements are demonstrated through the various strategies implemented under the SII branding.
