Digital Solidarity Transcends Ages
Photo taken on the 13th December 2018, during the official release of the Portuguese program “Solidarity Citizen Spot” (SCS), in a nursing home, Lisbon. The SCP central piece is the red suitcase, with a laptop and a printer, carried by a “citizenship mediator” that visits people with reduced mobility, hospitalized or info-excluded, such as the elderly lady in the photo, not able to go to public facilities.
By assuring that all citizens, namely the elderly, have access to the benefits of online services, this initiative helps turning the digital divide into a digital opportunity, promoting an equitable development for all.
