UNESCO Request for Input on Guidelines for Inclusive Digital Design

In an increasingly online world, people without the required digital skills and literacy – the 750 million people who cannot read or write and the many more who are semi-literate – now face a double exclusion, not only from the real world but also from the digital one. UNESCO is currently drafting a set of guidelines for more inclusive development of digital solutions for low-literate and low-skilled people, and is seeking wide input into the draft version.

The primary target audience for the guidelines are digital solution providers – from large providers such as Google and Facebook, to start-ups – as well as implementation and development partners. Policy makers and mobile network operators are a secondary audience.
