Global Digital Development Forum 2021 (Virtual)

Geeks' Travis Heneveld will moderate a (French) panel on Last Mile Connectivity at this year's Global Digital Development Forum. Join us on May 5th! La pandémie COVID-19 a plus que jamais révélé comment la connectivité haut débit représente une opportunité évidente pour toutes les parties prenantes de la société, en donnant par exemple aux citoyens l’accès à de multiples opportunités, en permettant aux gouvernements de fournir des services indispensables, et en assurant que l’économie fonctionne au minima. Cette session s’appuiera sur les recommandations d’un rapport ITU/UIT publie en novembre dernier, et permettra aux intervenants de partager leurs expériences et leurs points de vue sur les défis ainsi que les opportunités à venir.

Please RSVP Now to experience 120+ captivating talks and sessions, peer networking opportunities, and digital development technology demos showcasing community-driven sessions that explore digital development challenges and opportunities.

Our draft agenda showcases multiple events from 4:00-20:00 GMT on May 5th, across the workday from Asia, to Africa, to the Americas, including 14 lightning talks and breakout sessions in Spanish, and 8 in French.

Our draft agenda also features four topical threads spanning the entire 16-hour conference: Artificial Intelligence in international development, Gender considerations to improve your programs, Information integrity during an infodemic, and COVID-19 and its many impacts on our work.
