European i2010 Initiative on e-Inclusion


On November 8, 2007, the European Commission completed a communication entitled "European i2010 initiative on e-Inclusion - to be part of the information society". This communication proposes a European Initiative on e-Inclusion comprising:

A) An e-Inclusion campaign "e-Inclusion, be part of it!" to raise awareness and connecting efforts during 2008, to be concluded by a Ministerial Conference, to demonstrate concrete progress and reinforce commitments

B) A strategic framework for action to implement the Riga Ministerial Declaration by:

1. Enabling the conditions for everyone to take part in the information society by bridging the broadband, accessibility and tackling competences gaps.

2. Accelerating effective participation of groups at risk of exclusion and improving quality of life.

3. Integrating e-Inclusion actions to maximise lasting impact.
