The role of the United Nations in the digital world
In this 6th episode of DigitalDots Talks podcast we discuss trends and developments in the digital world with Amandeep Singh Gill, United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Technology. He connects the many dots on different digital topics that the UN covers. Why is it necessary and important to have a UN Tech Envoy? In 2021 the UN Secretary General presented Our Common Agenda to rebuild the world and secure a better and more sustainable future for our people and our planet. For the digital part of Our Common Agenda, a Global Digital Compact will be established. But what is this Global
Digital Compact? Who participates and what is its intended outcome? And what role will the private sector and other stakeholders play? In this podcast you will find the answers for these and many more questions. The interview is conducted by Lars Tummers, Ambassador, Deputy Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Geneva.
