“Innovating together: connectivity that matters”
The central theme of the Forum at ITU Telecom World 2019 focuses on the need for collaboration across nations, industries and organizations to ensure that digital technologies transform human lives positively – for everyone, everywhere.
How can we bring meaningful connectivity to all of the world’s citizens? Connectivity that is affordable, interoperable, relevant and fit for purpose. Local content in local languages, supported by digital skills, digital education and digital awareness.
What innovations in technology, policy and strategy will deliver smart development solutions and unlock the potential of digital societies in developed and emerging markets alike?
How can the public sector, international organizations and industry bodies work together to mitigate digital inclusion and the risks of living in a hyper-connected society? We need to address issues of trust in technology, cybersecurity and digital ethics. And we have to respect and develop environmental policies to secure our planet’s livelihood and preserve the current climate.
