Digital Cooperation Day: Discussion on the Global Digital Compact

Digital cooperation dynamics will pivot around the Global Digital Compact (GDC), which was introduced by the UN Secretary-General as part of the UN Pact for the Future. The GDC intends to cover a broad range of digital issues in a wider context, including data, AI, inclusion, the integrity of public information, internet fragmentation, and online human rights.

On the Digital Cooperation Day, the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP) will present the findings of the second edition of the Geneva Digital Atlas which maps overall digital developments in International Geneva. Based on this mapping, the discussion will be conducted with the UN Secretary-General’s envoy on technology (a key catalyst of the process towards the GDC) on priority policy questions for actors in Geneva. The discussion will include answers that the vibrant Geneva scene can provide to the global community.

This event is organised by the GIP, the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations Office in Geneva, and the Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM). We welcome you to join us on 25 October 2022 from 14:00 to 17:30 (CET) at the International Conference Center Geneva (CICG), room EF, 3rd floor.

With Melanie Kolbe, Project Manager, Center for Digital Trust, EPFL.
