May 29, 2024

Location IconGeneva, Switzerland

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)+20 Forum High-Level Event will mark a significant milestone of twenty years of progress made in the implementation of the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society, which took place in two phases — Geneva in 2003 and Tunis in 2005. Twenty years ago WSIS set the framework for global digital cooperation with a vision to build people-centric, inclusive, and development-oriented information and knowledge societies.

The WSIS+20 Forum High-Level Event, co-organized by ITU, UNESCO, UNDP and UNCTAD and co-hosted by ITU and the Swiss Confederation, serves as a platform for multistakeholder discussions with the objective to take stock of the achievements and key trends, challenges and opportunities since the Geneva Plan of Action in 2003. On May 29th, GBBC CEO Sandra Ro will join a session to discuss the UNJSPF's Digital Identity solution.
