Description
In conjunction with the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations, UNICEF and Generation Unlimited, the International Telecommunication Union, UNDP, and the Office of the Special Adviser to the Secretary-General, on Digital Cooperation, working together with other UN partners will convene a High-Level Digital Cooperation event, focused on concrete actions to safeguard the technological era for future generations. It is our global shared responsibility to find a path forward and to build back better digitally.

The event will feature three multistakeholder dialogues focused thematically on the need to connect, respect, and protect all people in the digital age. To ensure impactful and engaging discussions, these dialogues will not be presentations of prepared statements, but rather a dynamic conversation between the high-level speakers, facilitated actively by a moderator, interspersed with inspiring visual real-life stories.

The Summit will have a special focus on youth voices by profiling youth speakers that will deliver a short “scene setter” video interventions to open each session, thus framing the issue and theme for discussion. Moderators and panelists will also be asked to consider the youth aspect of digital cooperation challenges and opportunities, including aspects such as ensuring affordability of digital literacy, connectivity for schools, digital solutions for education, digital opportunities and employment for youth.
