Communication in a multi-cultural and aging society.
Never before, this many population groups lived together on such a small amount of space.
Belgium has a very diverse population, where language and culture problems can form an obstacle in integration. Thanks to new technologies such as fiber, all population groups can grow towards each other faster and better, which boosts integration.
Also for older people, who are easy prey to loneliness, technological means will fulfill a more important role.
Furthermore, the fibre network of The Last Mile vzw will reduce the physical distances between families, who - due to globalisation - live in different places in the world.
