Technology:   an assistive tool to reduce unwanted loneliness

Unwanted loneliness among the general population and, more specifically, among those most vulnerable, is one of the main concerns in today’s western world, that has been aggravated during and beyond the recent health crisis.
Technology serves as a tool to enhance cohesion in our daily lives that, without a doubt, enables us to develop friendly environments based on attention and care, in addition to implementing new ways to facilitate social connections that will help to better manage the available resources to reduce unwanted loneliness.
The ONCE is therefore committed to different strategies and actions aimed at reaching solutions to detect and mitigate how the feeling of being alone can affect our lives and our physical and emotional well-being, by using technology as an assistive tool to help the blind and visually impaired.

Time: From 17:00 to 19:00 h.
Venue: Red Lounge – Palace Duke Pastrana
