Before the summer, GeSI released its report on Enabling the Global Goals
, exploring the correlation between the increase in digital access worldwide and the progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). We are now teaming up with our Board member ETNO and the EU40 for a Brussels launch of the report in the context of the Digital4Smarties series. The event, hosted at the European Parliament, will open with a presentation of the report and Digital Access Index by Philipp Buddemeier, Director at Accenture Strategy. Digital leaders from the Parliament and industry stakeholders will then share their knowledge with participants; they will be joined by Luis Neves, GeSI's Managing Director, and Lise Fuhr, ETNO's Director General. Come challenge all you thought you knew about the SDGs, and learn how digital technology can be used to deliver dramatic improvements in crucial areas such as health, education, gender equality, and poverty.
