Auditorium Ivan Pictet, Maison de la paix, Geneva

On 10 June 2019, the High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation, appointed by the UN Secretary-General, issued its report, “The Age of Digital Interdependence”. The report lays out a series of recommendations to the private sector, civil society, national governments and international organisations to ensure that the benefits delivered by digital technologies to our societies and to each individual outweigh the challenges those technologies raise. 

Brad Smith, President of Microsoft, will discuss some key aspects of the report, as well as the role that Geneva and its surrounding region can play in building an inclusive and trustworthy digital world.

He will then be joined by Doris Leuthard, former President of the Swiss Confederation and former member of the High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation, and Amandeep Singh Gill, former Co-Executive Director, Secretariat of the High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation who will share their respective insights on the issues raised.

This discussion will be moderated by Myret Zaki, Swiss Economic Journalist.

The panel will conclude with remarks from Jovan Kurbalija, head of the Geneva Internet Platform and former Co-Executive Director, Secretariat of the High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation.

This panel is organised in partnership with the Club Diplomatique de Genève, with the support of the Geneva Internet Platform.
