Summit themes will include:
Seeking the Digital Truth
The impact of digital solutions on our society is not clear cut. It is crucial to have full transparency throughout our whole ecosystem. Seeking the digital truth will explore the implications, influence, and effect of digital technologies on individuals, communities, and economies on a local and global scale.
Magnifying the Voices
Community is at the heart of digital well-being. The voices of the new generation must be heard and amplified by engaging with consumers and creators, and empowering them to use their digital voice for change and action.
The Future of Digital Well-being
To shape the future of digital well-being, knowledge must be explored and shared. The forum will highlight the research, best practices, and collaborations needed to mobilize action around digital well-being and secure a prosperous digital future for all.
