Registration is now open for the First WSIS+10 Review Event


UNESCO, in cooperation with ITU, UNDP and UNCTAD, hosts the WSIS+10 Review Event, which will take place in UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, from 25 to 27 February 2013. World leaders, along with high-level participants from governments, intergovernmental organizations, the private sector, NGOs and other groups, will participate in this event.

This first multi-stakeholder review event will look at the WSIS Action Lines’ achievements, and will analyse recent developments as well as forecasts. It will also recommend some input to the post-2015 process.

The spread of mobile technologies, social media and broadband has affected socio-economic, behavioural and environmental dimensions in all spheres of our lives. It has become imperative to reflect, at a global level, on recent and future information technology and knowledge transformations, and to develop a new vision for sustainable knowledge societies beyond 2015 and thus for the discussions of the post-2015 development agenda.
