Additional Informations

The internet, social networks and everything that happens in the digital world is also important for the real world. Currently, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that started in 2020, all work, activism and educational processes moved to the digital realm.

This sudden change has forced everyone to adapt to this reality in which virtual meetings, the exchange of information through messaging applications and the general use of the Internet are part of our daily lives.

The digital divide in Latin American countries is enormous in urban and rural environments. And when we move to the reality of the Amazonian communities of Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, this gap is not only of internet access, but there is also a need for digital literacy, because their geographical location has limited their connectivity, as well as access to Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).
