New Technologies and the Third Sector walking hand on hand again


This 29th of May 2008 on the garage of Palau Robert, the second edition of the Third Sector and New Technologies conferences will take part. They are organized by SISOSCAT and this year are aimed to third sector entities having among their beneficiaries the dropout collectives or on risk to be socially excluded, mainly on Catalonia but also on any place on Earth. Sisoscat works everyday to diminish the digital breach, both by training and donating equipment.

For the second year on a row, the NGOs and new Technologies are reunited thanks to Sisoscat on the Third Sector and New Technologies conferences. On them you would be able to find, above all, examples of organizations that work in reducing the digital breach with technological projects; you could know where to find second hand material, how to treat waste products or know what are the so called TELECENTROS.

SISOSCAT Foundation is trying to promote the information society and fight somehow what we call the ‘Digital Gap, i.e, the unequal access to new technologies among different social groups, or even countries. Sisoscat also deals with computer hardware re-utilization, for example PCs, screens, printers, scanners, and electronic material in general. This is done thanks to public administrations’ and companies’ donations and, once reconditioned, are re-utilized by the beneficiaries entities that work with collectives on risk to be socially excluded due to the so-called digital gap.

SISOSCAT Foundation also is trying to be a meeting point between the third sector entities that work with new technologies, building local ‘telecentros’, giving training courses, or on cooperation programs with the third world.

The conferences with be held the 29th of may 2008 on the garage of Palau Robert, Paseo de Gracia, Barcelona.
