Race Online 2012 has one proposed mission - to create life enhancing
opportunities for the 4 million adults in the UK who have never been online.
There is both a moral and economic imperative for the wider community to take
the issue of digital inclusion much more seriously. It's also essential to
business that the UK is near 100% online as this will create efficiency savings,
attract investment, open opportunities and improve work force skills.
Race Online 2012 wants any organisation of any size to get involved and help tackle the issue. From encouraging business partners to sign up, to teaching friends and family to get online, or by donating old IT equipment locally - there are opportunities for all businesses to make a difference. It's simple to sign up and it only takes five minutes to register.
