Cities around the world have a unique position to contribute to and endorse a digital evolution of its citizens. Talent and infrastructure is important, but governance can pose an effective catalyst for shaping the future. Rio de Janeiro had an interesting program that put knowledge and technology centers into its slums and poorly educated regions, providing citizens with the latest technological devices such as tablets and smartphones. This created opportunity for the inhabitants of these regions to be included in the digital development of the country, ultimately leading to jobs in the ICT-field. This concept is called “digital inclusion”.
