We are delighted to invite you to our flagship event – Digital for a Green Recovery – at the World Cities Summit 2022, Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Singapore, on 2nd August 2022, between 3.00pm to 5.00pm (registration starts at 2.45pm).
COVID-19 offers a glimpse of what is coming, but it is also an opportunity for change. The pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented shock to human development, and highlighted how planetary and social imbalances reinforce each other. It has also highlighted that we need a ‘green recovery’ – to transform how we live, work, and play, and to drive a new era of sustainable development. Digital will be a key tool in this transition.
Join us in-person to hear from global innovation leaders about how:
- 📱 Digital – if applied thoughtfully, inclusively, and sustainably – can ensure that people and the planet prosper together
- 🌏 Countries can leverage digital products and services for sustainable and resilient development
- 📢 Digital and other solutions are transforming traditional development trajectories, for small and large states
- 🤝 Innovative partnerships – from local to global contexts – are making truly inclusive progress happen
