Author | Tania AlonsoIn an increasingly technological world, millions of people lack the training required to adapt to digitalisation. Furthermore, public administrations and private companies focus their efforts on creating smart cities that foster economic growth, without taking into account the possible creation of elements of inequality.The UNESCO estimates that around 192 million unemployed people are not equipped to find work in an increasingly dynamic labour market. Which involves simple skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic, but also, digitalisation. These figures illustrate the need to design models in which priority is given to social inclusion. And above all, which respect the quality of life of citizens.
