Description

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can offer many opportunities for everyone. People in marginalised areas, however, often lack the access to ICT facilities, training and networking.

The project Digital Play Fields is an example of an innovative experiment that the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Netherlands developed together with Kennisland. A digital play field is an area in a marginalised area where everyone, especially youngsters, can learn to use ICT and where activities are designed to strengthen the neighbourhood. Started in 2000 with 34 trap fields, there were more than 400 by the end of 2003.
