Champs efforts rewarded at roundtable event

The importance of improving Queensland’s digital literacy and inclusion has been highlighted at the Advance Queensland Community Digital Champions Roundtable held on 6 June, with 57 individuals recognised for their commitment. This brings the total number of champions to 67.

Our champions, from across Queensland, play an important role encouraging people of all ages and educational backgrounds in our society to explore and enjoy the benefits of the digital age.

The champions have all pledged to work with their local community groups to improve their digital understanding.

Our champions range from individuals working with seniors, to people producing TV programs for sick kids in hospitals, right through to creators of digital platforms for men’s mental health and suicide prevention.

At the event Minister Enoch said the champions’ role was particularly significant this year as 2016 was the National Year of Digital Inclusion.

The Advance Queensland Community Digital Champions roundtable successfully brought together champions, government and library representatives, as well as community and business groups to discuss opportunities for improving Queensland’s digital literacy and ensuring all parts of our society can enjoy being digitally confident.

Renowned international digital thought leader, Ms Helen Milner OBE, provided the keynote address. Helen is the Chief Executive of Tinder Foundation the UK’s leading not-for-profit social enterprise, pioneering digital inclusion.

Other speakers provided information on digital literacy and future needs in the areas of health, education, business and communities.
