100% Digital Leeds: Making Leeds a digitally literate city

11 May 2016


On Monday 23 May we are holding a free event in partnership with Leeds City Council to help co-design an ambitious digital literacy plan for the city that will bring partners from across the sectors together to build a plan that will have real impact on closing the digital divide in the city. If you live in the Leeds area and would like to help, we’d love for you to join us.

With 13% of adults in the Leeds City region having never used the internet before, they’re missing out on a range of financial, health and other personal benefits. Leeds City Council has a bold ambition to ensure 100% of residents have basic digital skills and they want to achieve this through the digital literacy plan. Can you help?

The event will be a practical one and we’re looking for delegates who can make a real impact on digital inclusion in the city, using their influence, experience and networks. We want you to get stuck in, helping us to shape the digital literacy priorities and opportunities for the city, then to help us make things happen.

You’ll get the chance to hear from Leeds City Council Chief Executive Tom Riordan, Chief Executive of Good Things Foundation, Helen Milner OBE, Victoria Betton from mHabitat and Mick Ward, Head of Commissioning for Adult Social Care at Leeds City Council.

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to a plan that will make Leeds a truly digital city.

Refreshments will be provided.
