Many insightful conversations took place yesterday at Charles Darwin University at the Northern Australia Digital Connectivity Forum. The aim of the Digital Connectivity Forum is to capture ideas and strategies to progress Northern Australia through Digital Inclusion. 

Professor Ruth Wallace moderated a panel discussion on ‘Holistic and inclusive approaches to digital inclusion in the Northern Territory and Northern Australia’. 

The panel included First Nations Media, Daniel Featherstone, Darwin Innovation Hub, Wendy Pech, Central Land Council Jason Quin and Northern Institute Dr Tracy Woodroffe.

Interactive sessions took place with key stakeholders from the Northern Territory and broader Northern Australia on Social Infrastructure and Digital Inclusion Ecosystem across agriculture, health and education, through technology and the internet.

This workshop is a key activity of the Collaborative Research Centre for Northern Australia’s (CRCNA) project ‘Northern Australia Communications Analysis’. To learn more about the project click here.
