Welcome to our campaign to Connect the Blue Continent.
As the world moves into the digital era, nations and regions across the world are building the information super-highway infrastructure needed to support their societies’ economic and social well-being in this new age.
Nations are co-operating within and across continents to support the international connectivity needed for economic and social development.
The Pacific Ocean is host to numerous island nations and communities which are in danger of being left behind in this transformational process.
Pacific Island governments and regional organisations have been examining this risk and some valiant efforts are being made to address the issue. However, a more comprehensive master-plan approach is needed to ensure this vibrant, often-forgotten ‘Blue Continent’ is properly included in the internet roadmap.
We are a group of volunteers based in Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world, working with a number of Pacific Island communities to co-ordinate a call to ‘Connect the Blue Continent’.
