The 2020 Communications Trust, a registered charity, has a long history in community-based digital projects, starting in 1996 in Wellington. We work with communities to successfully deliver projects that help New Zealanders benefit from our increasingly digital society. We promote and manage a number of digital literacy initiatives, including Computers in Homes, Stepping UP and ICDL, and other projects such as Living Heritage that engage schools and communities in the digital world.
Our particular focus is on communities and people who are at risk of being digitally excluded. These people will face increasing challenges in engaging in learning, finding a job, transacting with businesses and government and even just staying in touch with family and friends.
We work with partner organisations throughout New Zealand, delivering programmes to their local communities, and using the national Trust as a place to share ideas and experiences.
