Ericsson has announced a major new commitment to empower 1 million children and young people by 2025 through access to digital learning, tools, content and development programs.

This commitment forms part of the World Economic Forum-aligned EDISON Alliance 1 Billion Lives Challenge – a global movement of 45 champions from the public and private sectors.

The members, including Ericsson, are committed to prioritising digital inclusion as foundational to the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) so that every person can fully participate in the digital economy and society.

The 1 Billion Lives Challenge brings together digital inclusion commitments from governments, companies and other organisations globally.

Ericsson President and CEO, Börje Ekholm, said: “At the heart of Ericsson’s purpose is the belief that connectivity creates possibilities for all people. We believe it is a responsibility of government and business to work together to build a more equitable future for children and young people – digital connection is a critical enabler of this, ensuring that every young person has access to a quality Internet connection and can acquire the necessary skills to thrive in a digital economy.”
