We live a connected life no matter where we are. And with the boundaries of connectivity constantly being pushed, todays twitter is tomorrows fax machine. Where will the power of connectivity take us and how can it improve lives? Here we explore the concept of inclusion.

With an increasing proportion of elderly people, societies face challenges but also great opportunities to utilize ICT to create solutions to meet the needs and wants of a new senior class.

The power of connectivity can make a difference in public safety, emergency management, health care, business and social services. How can people be provided with equitable access to public services and opportunities irrespective of age or location?
