This Panel discussion during the 12th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance, promotes digital inclusiveness as an important element of knowledge societies as digital technologies have the potential for making significant improvements in the lives of persons with disabilities.
UNESCO works through its Information for All Programme to promote access to information for all disadvantaged communities and encourages constructive dialogue on information accessibility, with a special focus on access to information and knowledge using accessible digital technologies for the inclusion of disadvantaged communities and marginalized groups.

The panel discussion will advocate for inclusive knowledge societies that can serve as a trigger to reduce inequality as people living with disabilities can be fully part of society.
