Digital Nation Conference

Good Things Foundation Australia's first digital inclusion conference on 4 August 2021.

Be inspired and energised by a program of engaging speakers and workshops covering the latest digital inclusion issues affecting your community and organisation.

Join us online on 4 August at our first Australian digital inclusion conference Digital Nation: Building a Connected, Capable, Confident Country.

We’re bringing our network together along with stakeholders and advocates to celebrate our shared successes, look back at the challenges we’ve overcome, and look ahead at what still needs to be done as we continue to work towards a fully digitally included country.

The conference will build on our Digital Nation resources, which paint the picture of who is digitally excluded in Australia and the factors that impact levels of digital inclusion. We will highlight the stories, experiences, and expertise of those doing the work on the ground plus insights from the latest research. We’ll look at what’s working and what’s not, and focus on what is required now and into the future to ensure Australia is a thriving digital nation – connected, capable, and confident – where no one is left behind.

Registrations for this event are essential.
