#OperationWiFi – Recruiting!!!

We are looking for a creative and dynamic individual to help move forward a growing alliance of individuals and organisations who support the #OperationWiFi campaign.

#OperationWiFi emerged after conversations in Birkenhead, Hartlepool and Stockport when local organisations highlighted the challenges that the COVID19 pandemic would have for those who are digitally excluded.

From the early conversations a national alliance of individuals and organisations has been built to shine a spotlight on the millions of people that do not have access to the internet and the impact that this has on their lives.

The alliance is growing and calling on local and national partners to act now to:

  1. Enable wider access to Devices to get people online
  2. Create a CitizenSim to enable access to data
  3. Promote initiatives for digital literacy

Covid19 has shown us the power of digital to keep people connected. But it has also shown us the impact of not being connected. As the civic space become increasingly digitalised we need to ensure that we do not create a divide between the digital 'haves' and the digital 'have nots'. It is vital that partners behind the #OperationWiFi campaign can come together and build a collective voice that can fix the digital divide.
