At InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa, we're working towards an Internet for all where everyone has:
- affordable access to connectivity and a device that works for them
- trust in the Internet, so they feel safe participating online
- the motivation to get online to connect, communicate and create
- the skills to do what they want to do online.
We work with a number of organisations and individuals who share the same vision: to bring the benefits of the Internet to as many New Zealanders that we can.
With technology becoming more and more prominent in everyday life, there is a real risk of some areas of the country, as well as groups of Kiwis, falling behind. We say this in terms of access to the new technology and processes, as well as having the knowledge to use them. InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa is working towards digital equity, where all New Zealanders have the same ability to meaningfully participate online.
