Reflecting and Building on WSIS 20 years’ journey

Over the last 20 years, since its implementation in its first two phases, Geneva in 2003 and Tunis in 2005, the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum has been instrumental in shaping global discussions and policies around the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for development worldwide. This year's anniversary with the celebration of WSIS+20 not only marks a decisive milestone in our common journey and the implementation of the Forum's original goal, towards building people-centric, inclusive, and development-oriented information and knowledge societies, but also brings us a unique opportunity to truly reflect on the achievements realized so far and set a sustainable way forward, for an ethical and safe use of ICTs in a landscape that is now more fast paced than ever with the emergence of new disruptive technologies such as AI, capitalizing on lessons learnt and best practices, built through joint efforts at the global level.
