More and more, communication in the Netherlands is digital. This has a large impact on everyone’s lives. Technology can prepare our country for the future. It creates chances. But for many people, developments are going too fast. We must take this into account. We will make sure that everyone can take part in the digital society. Even those people who need extra help.
In the Netherlands, we increasingly communicate via digital means. This has a large impact on all our lives. Technology can prepare our country for the future. It offers opportunities. But for many people, the developments are going very fast. We have to take this into account. We will make sure that everyone can participate in the digital society. Including the people who need extra support.
It is important that as many people as possible are able to communicate with the government themselves. For this to happen, everyone needs to have access to the government. And everyone must be able to understand the information given by the government.
Digital skills are just as important as reading, writing and arithmetic. That’s why the government is already doing a lot to help people. But it is not enough. That’s why we are going to give even more help.
We cannot live without technology in our society. It is important that everyone understands this, and that everybody knows what this means. The government must do its best to reach that point, and people themselves must do this too.
Companies, researchers and other organisations also have a lot of knowledge about going digital. The government wants to use this knowledge. Together we can think up creative ways to help people going digital.
