A campaign is to run in Liverpool aimed at persuading citizens to use the internet.

The ‘Go on it’s Liverpool’ campaign, run by Liverpool City Council and Liverpool Vision, has been devised after it was found that around 100,000 people had never used the internet.

A series of events will, designed to encourage people to go online, with the aim of having an extra 25,000 people within the city using the internet by March 2012.

"Using the web is crucial to so many things in modern life and is only going to become more important in the future,” said councillor Nick Small.

"This is a great scheme to harness the enthusiasm of those who are already web savvy and encourage them to give an hour of their time to help get others online."

Digital adviser to the Government, Martha Lane Fox will launch the event tomorrow (1 November) at Liverpool Innovation Park.
