RCE Greater Western Sydney Co-Hosts 'Bridging the Disconnect' Roundtable

RCE Greater Western Sydney co-hosted a virtual roundtable discussion, 'Bridging the Disconnect – Engaging and Learning in the Digital Divide' on 25 June, 2020. The aim of the event was to foster discussion, collaboration and sharing of innovative forms of engagement and learning - going far and beyond most obvious solutions - with communities who are not able to connect digitally or not accustomed to the ‘new normal’ of being online due to the implications of COVID-19.

Facilitated by Dr. Zinaida Fadeeva, three presenters from RCE Pune, RCE Greater Phnom Penh, and RCE Bangalore presented on their community projects from WASH to Farming, as well as their mechanisms of engaging. Over 25 virtual participants joined the discussion from RCEs in the Asia-Pacific and African regions. Slides and project summaries from the event will be available to access here. A recording is also available to watch here.
