Driving Digital Equality
There are over 3 billion unconnected people in the world today.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, these “unconnected” have had limited and often no access at all to basic rights which we take for granted: education, work, health, and communications. The digital world is not accessible to them. They remain isolated – set aside from the rest of the world which strides further ahead with high-tech development and socio-economic opportunity.
Earth 3.0 Foundation is a Non-Profit Organisation with its headquarters in London, the United Kingdom.
We bring together a unique blend of international technology expertise, financial acumen, and funding to collaborate in the development and support of affordable connectivity and digital transformation based on sustainable business models, in close partnership and collaboration with national governments and local communities.
Connectivity is a right
The digital divide is growing
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the figures related to internet access in the world were already seriously worrying. Now they have reached “critical warning”. Just under half of the world’s population DO NOT have seamless access to the Internet and the critical opportunities that digital transformation brings.
The main reasons for such a shocking situation are:
highly limited geographical coverage, low signal quality and huge downtimes.
exorbitant data costs that can reach up to 40% of average wages.
There are over 3 billion people in the world that, today, remain unconnected to the rest of the world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for action in the regions of Africa, Latin America and South Asia, before the digital divide becomes unsurmountable.
Let's talk about AFRICA
Starting from AFRICA
The Earth 3.0 Foundation collaborates with governments, communities and local workforces, at national and municipality-level, to build powerful Digital Transformation (DT) and develop the skills capacity-building required, across cities, towns and villages.
This is achieved through our 5 DT Goals:
The Earth 3.0 Foundation supports the process of sustainable and resilient digital transformation of urban, suburban and rural areas of the world based on the UN’s 17 SDGs.
Information and communication technologies (ICTs) form the backbone of today’s digital economy and have enormous potential to fast forward progress on the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to improve people’s lives in fundamental ways.
